Sarathy Korwar 'My East Is Your West' 3xLP
Sarathy Korwar’s album is in collaboration with the UPAJ Collective, a group of estimable Indian jazz and classical musicians, members of which include Tamar Osborn (On The Corner Records), Al Macsween (Omar Puente, Pee Wee Ellis) and Aditya Prakash (Anoushka Shankar).
A unique homage to the Spiritual Jazz music of the 1960s and 70s and to artists such as Alice Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders.
It’s a culturally diverse album rich in musical colour. Sarathy Korwar’s pioneering approach and ethnomusicological background allows him to develop and innovate upon the Indo- jazz genre.
Fans of Korwar include Floating Points, Gilles Peterson and Keiran Hebden. Of his previous album Four Tet said: “Refreshingly different, this is a deep and powerful listening experience.”
Korwar has won great acclaim supporting Kamasi Washington on tour. More recently he’s collaborated with London luminaries Binker and Moses and Shabaka Hutchings.
