Stick Your Toe in Normalcy with Nitin Sawhney
When you’ve been in a certain mindset for an extended period of time it’s hard to get yourself out of it.
A massive change in your regular state of being being occurs once in a while that removes many of your usual obstacles and sets up new ones. You learn to function in accordance with these new obstacles and forget entirely what it’s like to overcome the other ones. Of course, we’re referring to the state of quarantine to which we’ve all become somewhat become accustomed.
But that hygiene-deficient womb into which we were all thrust is slowly letting in the horrific light and we now all have to face a far too bright reality whose rules involve shaving and social niceties.
It’s important to ease the transition from the womb to the outside with a small reminder of what it was like to be part of a world populated with the eyes of a million other humans whose every unconscious eyebrow movement belittled your paltry achievements.
Remind yourself of your ability to deal with the constant feeling of inadequacy with Nitin Sawhney.
Yes, multi-award-winning musician and composer Nitin Sawhney will present a special session from lockdown as part of the Royal Albert Home series. Sawhney has had a rich and varied career, working across music, film, television, theatre and dance as a producer and composer, and was the recipient of the Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017. He has played the Hall on numerous occasions, including last year’s Beyond Skin Revisited, which saw him recreating Beyond Skin, the culturally iconic album, live and in full for the very first time.
Watch a man far talented than yourself remind everyone of how talented he was and continues to be from the safety of your own home…before you have to go outside and face the eyes of those uppity, judgemental street possums.
