Beyond Skin is an album by Nitin Sawhney. It was released on the Outcaste label in 1999. The album focuses largely on the theme of Nuclear Weapons; Sawhney states in the booklet that the album "has a timespan that runs backwards", beginning at Broken Skin with the India-Pakistan nuclear situation and ending at Beyond Skin with Robert Oppenheimer quoting the Bhagavad Gita - "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds".
Sawhney also aims to question what constitutes one's identity - he writes in the liner notes for the album: "I believe in Hindu philosophy. I am not religious. I am a pacifist. I am a British Asian. My identity and my history are defined only by myself -- beyond politics, beyond nationality and Beyond Skin."
"Nadia" (Sawhney) — 5:05 (The vocalist for this song is Swati Natekar who is singing in the Brij dialect of Hindi. The words roughly translate to: "The River ebbs and flows, My lover calls, I do not hear")
