Having already collaborated with Björk, The Cinematic Orchestra, Anoushka Shankar, Andreya Triana and the London Symphony Orchestra, 2015 see’s Manu Delago release his new album, ‘Silver Kobalt’ on Tru Thoughts - a continuation from the subtle beautiful world/electronic crossover that was 2014’s ‘Bigger Than Home’.

Manu Delago’s music explores a vast array of sounds, ranging from sweet and delicate vocal lines with colourful Hang accompaniment, all the way through to chunky, electronic beats for an incredibly fresh and innovative sound.
The live show of Manu Delago is a definite must-see.
The performance is delicate and sophisticated, moving with ease between heavily rhythmic and free-flowing spherical sections.

For a really special gig we needed a really special and intimate venue!
The Bush Hall’s unique character and incredible acoustics makes it the ideal backdrop for one of the most enchanting shows of the year!

Artist Bio

After touring almost simultaneously around the globe with Björk, Anoushka Shankar, Olafur Arnalds & releasing his multi-award winning music & mountain film 'Parasol Peak‘, the Austrian grammy-nominated percussionist and composer presents his new album with a 9-piece-ensemble. Dream-like Handpan sounds meet energetic orchestral beats.

Trained in classical percussion, the highly acclaimed Austrian composer, ensemble leader and musician, Manu Delago is one of the leading exponents of the Handpan (or Hang). In 2011 he recorded for Björk's Biophilia album and has since been her touring drummer, playing three world tours with the Icelandic singer. In 2013, he started performing and writing music with the sitar-player Anoushka Shankar. For his work on her album 'Land of Gold' Manu Delago earned a Grammy nomination. The versatile percussionist has also been a touring member of The Cinematic Orchestra and Olafur Arnalds. As well as releasing four genre pushing studio records on Tru Thoughts and One Little Indian, Manu Delago has also written several compositions for choir and orchestra such as the 'Concertino Grosso' which he performed and recorded as soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra.

His last record Parasol Peak is a unique and awe-inspiring album and accompanying movie, in which Delago leads an ensemble of 7 musicians on a mountaineering expedition in The Alps. Along the way, the group perform a collection of brand new compositions in different locations, at varying altitudes. Screenings and live performance have been toured across the UK and Europe in 2018/19.

For his first performance in Sheffield, Manu will bring his 9 piece orchestra ensemble featuring woodwind, brass, percussion and strings. Expect a mesmerizing performance from this world class musician.
