In the words of the Guardian “it is easier to list what Nitin Sawhney has not done than what he has!” a statement that could not be truer!
Sawhney has extensively scored music for theatre, cinema, videogames, dance and television, not to mention his studio albums. His work includes Mira Nair’s “The Namesake,” two silent films both accompanied by London Symphony Orchestra “A Throw of Dice” and “Yogoto No Yume”.
His latest project, Nitin Sawhney has created a fresh pioneering musical soundscape to accompany an eight part momentous series HUMAN PLANET. As described by the BBC
“Human Planet is an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind’s incredible relationship with nature in the world today.”
I believe the reason for choosing Nitin Sawhney for this particular project is due to his reputation as one of the very few composers around whose music has the capacity to surpass cultural barriers.

Blending a multitude of genres and combining fresh contemporary sounds with an epic cinematic vibe – Sawhney has succeeded in truly bringing the HUMAN PLANET to life.
HUMAN PLANET premieres Thursday, January 13 at 8 pm on BBC1 and runs for 8 weeks.
