Narotam recently completed an MMUS degree in composition with distinction from Goldsmiths University, where he conducted ethnomusicological research into the devotional traditions of kirtan and bhajan, as a contemporary extension from keyboard influenced music.

In January 2021 Narotam received one of Sound and Music’s COVID-19 Composer Awards:
“This award has perfectly set me up to streamline and deliver projects from home. By purchasing a pair of condenser microphones I have been able to finalise my home studio, equipping me for covid-compatible professional life! Thank you Sound and Music!”
