Ok is the debut release of tabla player and music producer Talvin Singh, and it was nine months in the making. The title was chosen because of the universality of the word OK, which can be understood almost anywhere in the world. It is mostly a reinterpretation of Indian classical music with flute, sitar, and tabla. The album won him the Mercury Music Prize for 1999, but has only sold 90,000 copies in the United Kingdom and charting at a lowly #41, making it one of the smallest sellers in the award winners history.[2]
