Best of Baluji Shrivastav (ARC Music)
Blind and self-taught, the British-Asian composer runs a foundation that encourages people with disabilities to make music, a project that earned him an OBE in 2016. His own music, played on sitar and other instruments, draws on Indian classical and folk traditions with eclectic borrowings from the Middle East, Afghanistan and beyond. A Top of the World in #127.
