This summer, British Indian artist Nitin Sawhney was granted the Royal Albert Hall for the occasion of BBC Prom 37, and gave an immensely accomplished performance. Sawhney, a veteran of seven studio albums and numerous live acts, represents the latest attempt by Prom director Nicholas Kenyon to reach a wider audience. The result was a multi-faceted musical evening, featuring orchestral film scores, Indian classical music instruments and dance. Although the addition of Zero Degrees’ choreographed narratives seemed to be a somewhat unnecessary addition, and the acoustics were not well suited for some of the pieces, the event proved to be a resounding success for Sawhney and the Proms.
