Nitin Sawhney chooses the Gold Coast for an exclusive Queensland performance

Nitin Sawhney will perform one of only three Australian shows in October at HOTA, celebrating 20 years since the release of ‘Beyond Skin’.

Audiences will be given the chance to experience one of the most important musicians of his generation as he recreates his culturally iconic work live and in full, along with other tracks from his back catalogue.

The British-Indian musician, producer and composer will be joined onstage by talented artists Aref Durvesh on tabla, Anna Phoebe McElligott on violin and Nicki Wells and Eva Stone on vocals to deliver this exclusive performance.

Being the second stop on Sawhney’s tour – in between the OzAsia Festival in Adelaide and the Melbourne International Arts Festival – HOTA continues their quest to bring high quality, meaningful entertainment to the Gold Coast for families to enjoy.

HOTA CEO, Criena Gehrke said they are excited to have such an international icon performing at Home of the Arts.

“He’s one of those artists whose influence has been felt across many creative mediums and bringing him to the Gold Coast for his only Queensland performance is an incredible coup for us,” she said.

Sawhney explains how Beyond Skin remains as significant today as it was 20 years ago.

“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,” he said.

“Featuring a host of talented musicians, the show will seek to not only recreate and reflect upon the journey of the album, but also forge an unforgettable event that marks Britain’s most culturally challenging year for decades.”

Nitin Sawhney’s performance will take place in Theatre 1 at Home of The Arts on Saturday 19 October at 7:30pm. Click here for tickets.
