Experimental, cerebral, exquisite - the words to describe London-based Sarathy Korwar's music hardly do justice to what you get to witness! He is the face of new age of Jazz in India, and has quickly made a name for himself internationally. His music is exploratory and insightful, fusing his cultural identity with musical diversity. Sarathy's renown has come hard on the heels of his outstanding debut album 'Day to Day', the live masterpiece 'My East is Your West' and most recently 'More Arriving' his second studio album.
We are so excited to announce that the jazz artist is heading to Calcutta! Catch him live at The Jam joined by his band and guest artists on 21st February, at VAULT Lounge Bar <3

Sarathy's music doesn't entangle itself in the dichotomy of
'Eastern' or 'Western'. His music is a unique synthesis of
modern jazz that incorporates his deep understanding of Indian
sounds. He has carved a niche for himself in India and the UK
owing to his mastery over the Tabla and the Drums.
His debut album 'Day to Day' is recognized by the BBC as the top 10 albums of the year and his album 'My East is your West' won Guardian's 'Contemporary Album of the Month'. His achievements are a result of his ability to harmonize modern jazz with electronic music as well as hip hop.
HIs latest album, 'More Arriving' embodies local Indian rappers that seemingly compliment his elegant style of modern jazz . This album highlights the plurality of brown voices and accurately depicts the struggles of immigrants being told to 'go home' . His album is an important and relevant production that reflects the conflicting and confrontational politics of today.
