The 8,000 meters club is among the world’s most elite. Nepali-born mountaineer Nimsdai Purja broke world records when he scaled all 14 peaks above 8,000 meters in just six months. He pushed the boundaries of the seemingly impossible and demonstrated the possibilities of humanity’s abilities. Composer Nainita Desai was up for the task of scoring the documentary to this monumental feat and it shows. Having just received a 2022 EMMY® nomination for Outstanding Music Composition for a Documentary Series, we take this opportunity to shine a light on Nainita’s work behind the scenes. Watch the video below.
