About

NAROTAMPIC2.jpg

I am a British Indian composer, pianist and event coordinator from Watford. I was awarded a full scholarship to study piano and composition at the Purcell School of Music, aged 12. While studying under Dai Fujikura, I was selected as the youngest composer to take part in Harrison Birtwistle’s birthday celebration in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and received an honourable mention in the BBC Young Composer of the Year. My music has been performed by the Nash Ensemble at the Wigmore Hall, by Ian Brown at the Cadogan Hall, The Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room, The Royal Overseas League, The Outsider Art Fair New York amongst others, and I was a recent recipient of the Sound & Music Covid-19 Composers Award 2021.


In 2017, I established the River Recital event series held at Tower Bridge Moorings on the River Thames, aiming to bring together music from different cultures within a community-oriented, alternative space for listening. Over three years, we have hosted performances from acclaimed musicians; Lucie Treacher, Josh Doughty and SKELTR, garnering support from FLOAT PR, Food For All UK and Tower Bridge Yacht & and Boat Company.


In 2020, I completed a Masters degree in Composition from Goldsmiths College and received a distinction. While studying under Barley Norton and Roger Redgate, I conducted comparative, ethnomusicological research into the devotional traditions of kirtan and bhajan, as a contemporary extension from keyboard influenced music.


I have recently completed commissions for film maker Sam Ra, percussionist Eugene Skeef and spiritual figure Dhirasanta Dasa Goswami. Recent performances include Nils Frahm’s event Sheets Zwei, South Asia Solidarity Group Fundraiser, PureGold Lockdown Live, and both "River Recital Presents" and "Wear Your Corona Like a Garland of Stars" for Anthony Tidd’s ACT4Music festival alongside Abel Selaocoe, Alice Zawadski and Peter Vilk.
