Talvin Singh is a celebrated composer and performer. He came to prominence in the 90s as a renowned tabla player and producer, collaborating with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Bjork, before releasing his debut solo album OK in 1998 which won the Mercury Music Prize. Since then he has collaborated with numerous artists, including David Sylvian and Madonna, and has scored multiple film, dance, theatre and installation works.
