Prashant Mistry, is an Indian origin musician, whose album Symbol has been nominated in the category of the Best Immersive Music Album at the 61st Grammy Awards.

ôItÆs an incredible honour to have my album nominated for a Grammy and to see Jorja Smith, who is a sound engineer, is nominated for Best New Artist. In fact, there is no feeling quite like it. As a musician starting out you dream of things like this, you then spend your whole life learning and studying, trying to perfect your craft,ö said Prashant on his noteworthy nomination at the Grammys.

Prashant tells what his album Symbol is all about, ôThe album Symbol is especially important for me as itÆs a call for empathy in times when powers seek to drive us apart, commented Mistry on being nominated at the 61st Grammy Awards.ö
