Emerging talent and Indian-influenced jazz Composer, producer, and percussionist Sarathy Korwar joins Associate Artist John Ball on tabla and santoor to kick off our whistlestop tour around a world of music. Resonant melodies and jazz influences combine in Sarathy Korwar’s writing, along with the voices of Four Tet, Floating Points and Gilles Peterson who have all mentored this innovative musician.
Growing up in India he began playing tabla aged ten, but was drawn to American music he heard on the radio that leaked through the doorway of his local jazz music shop. His first album, Day To Day, was released in 2016 and is a potent commentary on the modern world. Linking sounds he has experienced during his life growing up in three continents, the celebrated release fuses traditional folk music of the Sidi community in India, combining East African, Sufi and Indian influences, with jazz and electronics.
