Born in the United States but grown up in India, Sarathy Korwar started playing the tabla, a traditional Indian percussive instrument, when he was ten years old. After he attended the SOAS (The School of Oriental and African Studies) in London, Korwar has established himself as one of the most original and compelling voices in the UK jazz scene, leading the UPAJ Collective and working with artists of the calibre of Shabaka Hutchings (The Comet is Coming), clarinest Arun Ghosh and producer Hieroglyphic Being, and groups like Penya and Ill Considered.
Korwar’s daring debut album, Day To Day, released in 2016, combines traditional folk music recorded with the Sidi community in India with contemporary jazz and electronic music. In November 2018 he performed and recorded My East Is Your West, during a soldout live show at Church of Sound. The result is a brilliant and unique blend of London’s new jazz talent with the Indian classical instrumentation. A critically-acclaimed take on the cultural appropriation of “spiritual” Indo-jazz, My East is Your West has been awarded as The Guardian’s Contemporary Album of the Month. His second studio album, More Arriving published in July 2019, blasts out out Sarathy Korwar’s own vibrant, pluralistic narrative for the world to hear, showing itself as a honest reflection of Korwar’s experience of being an Indian in Britain.
