Home - Naresh Sohal

A unique voice in contemporary classical music

Born in Punjab in 1939, and a long-time resident of the UK, Sohal’s work spans two cultures eloquently and with flair. As a British composer, he writes fluently in the Western idiom: as an Asian composer, he draws heavily on the insights of Indian philosophy.

He combines passion with technical brilliance to further his main purpose: the elevation of the human spirit. His music has been performed worldwide. In 1987 he was awarded a Padma Shri by the Indian government for his services to Western music.
