*** Amar ***
London-based Asian singer Amar first featured on the 1997 album 'Talvin Singh presents Anokha : Sounds of The Asian Underground'. The daughter of Bhangra royalty Mangal Singh, she signed to Warner in her teens, recording her debut album 'Outside', produced by Nitin Sawhney.
Since then Amar has attracted the attention of hip hop heavyweight Timbaland and she features on his current album 'Shock Value'. She also appears on remixes of Nelly Furtado's 'Maneater' and 'Promiscuous Girl' singing in both Hindi and English.
Her forthcoming album is tipped to be the next Asian breakthrough release and will feature production from Timbaland and Jim Beanz.
Amar's Electric Proms performance will be an exclusive preview of her new album and will include special electric reversions of her early hits 'Jaan', 'Sometimes...' and 'Red Sky'.
