Multi-award-winning musician and composer Nitin Sawhney joins Classic Album Sundays’ founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy for the third interview in our new series ‘My Classic Album’ on Sunday 20th December at 8pm GMT, to discuss his Mercury Music Prize nominated album Beyond Skin. Sawhney will discuss his inspirations and the stories behind the album and the impact it had on British Music. 

Beyond Skin portrays Sawhney’s reflections on British Asian identity and the pressing need for human beings to be recognised beyond religion, nationality, politics and skin colour. During last year’s 20th anniversary celebrations of the album Sawhney commented:

“In this year where Brexit negotiations, political turmoil and chaos have brought issues of identity, nationality, race and religion into focus once more, the themes of Beyond Skin are more relevant than ever.” 

‘My Classic Album’ is a series of free-to-view artist interview streams created with support from the Arts Council England Cultural Recovery Fund. Future interviews will feature artists such as Moses Boyd, Goldie, Black Midi and many more.
