Daniele Sarathy is definitively one of my favourite contemporary artists. This album has a direct clear message that personally touches me. The music is powerful, clever, full of anger but also containing some beautiful delicate passages. The mixture of different languages, means of expression, and musical genres feels natural and pleasant. I never get tired of listening to this album, I highly recommend it to everyone!

Vik Srinivasan AMAZING album - my favorite of 2019 by far! Every single track has a purpose - almost like a flow of scenes in a movie. Sarathy Korwar is pushing the boundaries of jazz and I can't wait for his next release. Favorite track: City of Words (feat. TRAP POJU & Mirande).

pierrelefou Great funky, jazzy, world music. It just shows that regions you never gave a second thought to in the past are putting out incredible, vital records.

Torsten What a fantastic album, full of energy and sounds from all over the world. Touching on a topic everyone will have faced at some point in their life - finding your own identity in a strange world. It has already made a well deserved impact on the album charts. Favorite track: Pravasis (feat. Deepak Unnikrishnan).

about

We live in divisive times. Multiculturalism rises hand-in-hand with racial tensions, and politicians seem powerless to even bring people within earshot of their convoluted message. It’s time for a different perspective.

On his second studio album, More Arriving, Sarathy Korwar blasts out his own vibrant, pluralistic missive for the world to hear. This is not necessarily a record of unity; it’s an honest reflection of Korwar’s experience of being an Indian in a divided Britain. Recorded over two and a half years in India and the UK, More Arriving draws on the nascent rap scenes of Mumbai and New Delhi, incorporating spoken word and Korwar’s own Indian classical and jazz instrumentation. This is a record born of confrontation; one for our confrontational times.

With this album, Korwar expands his politicised narrative to envelop the entire diaspora. “This is a modern brown record. The kind of record that a contemporary Indian living in the UK for the past 10 years would make,”Korwar says. “This is what Indian music sounds like to me right now.” It all begins with the title: “More Arriving comes from the scaremongering around Brexit,” Korwar says. “It’s a tongue-in-cheek play on the fact that there are more people coming and you’ll have to deal with it!” Through this defiance, Korwar takes clear pride in the knotty mix of his identity – harking back to the new India of the Mumbai hip-hop kids, as well as identifying with London’s cultural diversity. “I want the idea of brown pride to come through,” he says. “My voice is one amongst a thousand, but this record is a snapshot of something much greater than myself. It’s the chance to send a message.
