Jasdeep Singh Degun

Jasdeep is an award-winning sitarist based in Leeds, UK. Jasdeep began his training in vocal music with Smt. Gunwant Kaur whilst studying at Primary School in Leeds. He soon began classes at the local community centre under the guidance of the late Jayasree Sen Gupta, before learning under Dr Vijay Rajput as part of the Yorkshire Young Musicians scheme at the Leeds College of Music. Jasdeep was also a regular attendee of the South Asian Arts-uk annual Summer Schools and had the opportunity to train with the renowned vocalists Pandit Ajoy Chakrabarty and Kaushiki Chakrabarty. 

Jasdeep began the study of sitar under Ustad Dharambir Singh MBE from the relatively late age of fifteen. Taken initially as a secondary subject, Jasdeep soon made the decision to focus primarily on sitar with Ustad Dharambir Singh as his sole teacher and mentor.

Throughout his career, Jasdeep has had the opportunity to perform in many high-profile venues such as the Queen Elizabeth hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, the Manchester Bridgewater and many more. Recently, Jasdeep took part in a BBC 2 documentary and performed at Buckingham Palace for HRH Prince Harry as part of Goldie’s Band.  As a result of these collaborations, Jasdeep has developed a well-rounded sense of musicality and sensitivity towards other styles of music

Jasdeep was recently awarded a Sky Academy Scholarship to work on a debut album of contemporary and classical music. As part of the scholarship, Jasdeep is currently mentored by the illustrious multi-instrumentalist and producer, Nitin Sawhney.
