Sarathy Korwar announces his ambitious second studio album ‘More Arriving’

2nd May 2019

Sarathy Korwar has just announced his second studio album, ‘More Arriving’.

Coming out on Leaf Label (Szun Waves, Melt Yourself Down) on 26 July, the album is proceeded by leading single ‘Mumbay’, ft rapper MC Mawali. Sarathy Korwar’s percussion paces throughout, accented by spiritually-leaning saxophone melodies and deeply rhythmic flows from MC Mawali. 

‘Pravasis’ is also available to listen to ahead of the album release. On this track, Deepak Unnikrishnan takes us through an engaging monologue; he lists jobs and legal states, and the context unravels as Sarathy enters with a beautiful tabla beat. 

Recorded over the course and two and a half years between the UK and India, ‘More Arriving’ – put simply – sees the coming together of musicians between two deeply rich scenes; UK Jazz and Indian hip-hop. The album features acclaimed artists from the South Asian diaspora, including rappers MC Mawali, Prabh Deep and Delhi Sultanate, and spoken word artists Zia Ahmed and Deepak Unnikrishnan.
