After collaborating with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Björk in the early 1990s, Singh released his debut album Ok which received the Mercury Music Prize in 1999.
Singh has since collaborated with a variety of acts including Madonna and Massive Attack. Of late, Talvin has collaborated with the new age Sitar player Niladri Kumar.
