Win tickets for Nitin Sawhney at Band on the Wall

Nitin Sawhney – much respected musician, producer, DJ and all-round creative dynamo – is coming to Band on the Wall later this month to direct a collaborative project called Aftershock International. He'll be spending ten days there, working with upcoming artists from Manchester, Genova and Marseille to create an incredible, new, one-off performance – and we're giving away two pairs of tickets to see it.

It's set to be an extraordinary event where soul and R&B meet experimental electronica, and French hip-hop blends with folk and jazz. The Manchester talent taking part will be Denis Jones, whose guitar-based music expands into complex orchestrations of beat-box rhythms, multi-layered vocals and other-worldly sounds. And Matt Halsall – a trumpeter, composer, DJ, producer and band leader whose debut album received rave reviews and heavy airplay from the likes of Gilles Peterson (Radio 1), Stuart Maconie (6 Music) and Mike Chadwick (Jazz FM).

Nitin said “Aftershock has always been one of my favourite projects. It’s refreshing and inspiring to be able to work alongside such amazing new talent. What’s really important is that we all expect the final event to be a proper gig, not a workshop showcase, so there’s pressure to deliver….but the intensity is one of the many things that make Aftershock so enjoyable.”

The Aftershock International performance will take place on Saturday 30 January at 8pm and will be followed by an aftershow party including a DJ set from Nitin. He'll also be giving a talk about his career on Tuesday 26 January at 7pm. Visit www.bandonthewall.org for details.

We've got two pairs of tickets to give away to the performance on Saturday 30 January. To be in with a chance of winning, just fill in the form below:
