In May 2022, Jasdeep Singh Degun released his debut album Anomaly on Real World Records — a project showcasing an almost preternatural musicality, a way with technique, improvisation, composition and collaboration that will dazzle purists and newcomers alike. Mentored by Nitin Sawhney and working with Sawhney’s producer David McEwan, the album’s twelve tracks range from inspired sitar solos to orchestral cinematic journeying. Music rooted in the ancient repertoire of raags, the frameworks used in the improvised performances of Indian classical music, and delivered with contemporary flair.
