The Festival presents cross-cultural cool with internationally renowned Indian-British producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist, Nitin Sawhney. An acclaimed flamenco guitarist and classical/ jazz pianist, Sawhney’s musical ability to transcend cultural barriers has gained him recognition from the classical and pop communities.
Singer-songwriter Meshell Ndegeocello will join Sawhey onstage, and bring her eclectic blend of folk, jazz, hip-hop, funk, and rock sensibilities.
A world-class producer, songwriter, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer, and cultural pioneer, Sawhney is a versatile musical talent and a latter-day Renaissance man in the worlds of music, film, videogames, dance, and theatre
Meshell Ndegeocello has been called her everything from avant garde to a dying breed, and is known as a virtuoso bassist, prolific songwriter and an authentic musical force. She has earned critical acclaim, the unfailing respect of fellow players, songwriters and composers, and the dedication of an international fan base.
