Sarathy Korwar (Ninja Tune, Leaf label) is a classically trained tabla player who soon immersed himself in the London Jazz Scene collaborating with Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming) and clarinettist Arun Ghosh.
He worked with Four Tet, Floating Points and Gilles Peterson on the Steve Reid Foundation to produce his extraordinary debut album in 2016. Released on Ninja Tune it fused traditional folk music of the Sidi community in India with jazz and electronics and was included in BBC’s Late Junction top 10 albums of the year.
His tours across Europe have seen him opening for Kamaal Williams, Kamasi Washington and Moses Boyd.
Sarathy will release his new album 'More Arriving' through the Leaf label on 21st June 2019. It features South Asian rappers and poets many from the Dharavi slum in Mumbai where a young energetic hip hip scene is emerging.
The album is focused upon South Asian identity and fuses spiritual jazz, hip hop, Indian classical and electronics.
“Refreshingly different, this is a deep and powerful listening experience.”
