Boomkat Product Review:
‘My East Is Your West’ appears here in its full unedited glory, 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 Indojazz 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."
