Percussionist, and composer, Sarathy Korwar has announced his second album My East Is Your West.
The recording consists of a live performance at Church of Sound and features the UPAJ Collective, a group of estimable Indian classical, folk, and jazz musicians as well as Western jazz musicians.
“‘Eastern music’, much like the term “African music’ says Kowar “are still ubiquitous and are indicative of how the UK sees, hears and consumes a lot of music that is from afar. This album (and its title – My East Is Your West) attempts to question notions of what and where ‘East’ and ‘West’ is, in the disturbingly common and casual use of these terms whilst talking about music and bringing together both jazz and Indian classical music with a shift in the power dynamic.”
Today, we’re treating you to the utterly relaxing and elevating sounds of Earth, a sublime track that gives you the perfect positive vibes to rid of any lingering Monday blues.
The album arrives on November 9th via Gearbox Records.
