The first I heard of Royal Albert Hall was when the Indian nightingale Lata Mangeshkar was invited to perform there way back in 1974. According to Wikipedia, she was to become the first Indian to perform in there. A best-seller recording of that event also helped make the hall a well known name in India.
Since then I’ve always wanted to see the famed hall and if possible attend a music programme in there. This summer I got this long awaited opportunity in the form of an “Indian Voices” concert being held as a part of the BBC Proms. I was able to get some tickets for the morning session of this programme which was to feature Hindustani classical Music. For fellow Indian classical music buffs, the complete recording of this programme can be heard here.
For fellow photography/ travel buffs, here are some chosen pictures
