Return of Mercury Prize winner that bridged Indian and electronic music, plus support Kapil Seshasayee

As a percussionist, producer and composer, Talvin Singh is renowned for creating bridges between Indian traditional music and contemporary electronica. Since he won the Mercury Music Prize in 1999 for debut album OK, Singh has inspired musicians across India and the south Asian diaspora.

He has taken the tabla in many previously unimaginable directions, often collaborating with a diverse selection of artists, including Yoko Ono, John Martyn and Terry Riley. 

He is supported by Scottish-Indian protest musician Kapil Seshasayee, whose R&B-influenced second album Laal tackles Bollywood's dark underside.
