Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 2000
Deeply moving and provocative, Nitin Sawhney's Beyond Skin chronicles this British East Indian's struggle to find his identity as a citizen in a country that is not his ancestral homeland. Sawhney intelligently explores such diverse topics as identity, race, history, and atomic weapons through the eyes of a devout pacifist, while creating a musical backdrop where trip-hop, drum & bass, soul, and world music coexist peacefully. --Kevin Cole
 

CD Reviews

Simply... wonderful

"This is pure beauty on a disk. Slick but real, filled with powerful imagery and beautifu lvibes, this one didn't leave my CD player for months. In the trip-hop vain but with plenty of india-real-world thrown in. You don't want this disk. You need it."
It makes you think , it makes you feel , it makes u dance...

"What else can u ask for . Brilliant CD , not for Indian music fans only . Just listen to 'Homelands' and you've been at India , Spain , South America all at one track . He'll take u with these beautiful sounds all over the world and all u can do is ask for more ."
THE BEST CD I'VE HEARD IN A WHILE

"Lush exploration of many different musical styles with a political bent-- a harsh indictment of nuclear destruction, from Hiroshima to India's most recent testing. Music and Politics? It's about time!"
