Sultan Khan was a hereditary sarangiya – a sarangi player – and one of the preeminent Hindustani or Northern Indian classical soloists of our age. He played one of the most brutish-looking instruments humanity has ever devised. Yet the voices that he coaxed from this squat, bowed, stringed instrument were divine. The instrument's name derives from two words meaning "100 colours", but Sultan Khan proved that the sarangi hid many more than that. Many hold it to be the instrument able to capture the nuances and tonal range of the human voice the most faithfully. Many – Mickey Hart, the Grateful Dead drummer-turned-Smithsonian Folkwayswallah who recorded him included – hold sarangi to be the greatest melody instrument ever devised. And without question, Khan was one of sarangi's all-time virtuosi.

A little under an hour has passed, and James Blake has arrived at the end of his show, bar one last, luscious, understated reading of "The Wilhelm Scream". "I actually haven't got much music, I don't know if you've noticed," laughs the singer and electronic composer to cheers from the crowd. Possibly they haven't noticed, because what had gone before was a rich, evocative and often ground-breaking core of work, which sums up this most deservedly fêted (and, indeed, Mercury-nominated) young artist.

Lamb used to feel like the most infuriatingly middle-class band in existence: a Portishead for people who were scared of the dark, a proto-Dido to provide ambience at dinner parties.
