With ‘More Arriving’, drummer, tablaist and composer Sarathy Korwar contributes some of the (extremely healthy) London jazz scene’s most compelling material: a potent, confrontational yet frequently beautiful collection that pulls together classical Indian traditions, jazz and hip hop to thrilling effect. His sound is a fusion that rejects tokenism and embraces new incarnations of deep traditions; as Korwar has explained, “When we talk about traditions in music, whether it be Indian classical or jazz, the traditions are constantly evolving. Indian classical music sounds very different than what it sounded like 50 years ago”.
