About Talvin Singh

Creator of an innovative fusion of Indian bhangra music and drum'n'bass electronica, Talvin Singh was classically trained on the tabla but rejected most of his learning when he founded the Anokha club night at East London's Blue Note. Singh grew up in Leytonstone, but he was transplanted to India at the age of 16 to pursue a classical education. He returned to Britain in the late '80s and began picking up work as a musician, playing with a diverse cast of artists. By late 1995, Singh founded Anokha, the club night where drum'n'bass DJs and Asian punk bands went head to head with the amped-up sounds of his tabla and percussion. He also worked as a remixer before issuing his proper solo debut, OK, in late 1998.
