Kumar Thomas Junk Reflects the pure joy of musical interactions. Great choice of compositions without making it sound like a tribute. Favorite track: Earth.

Jah is Love Absolutely IMMENSE!! So multi-layered, like an intricately woven tapestry, soaring, stirring and absolutely electrifying, got genuine spine tingles on many occasions. The blend between “east” and “west” feels truly genre defining. Every track is a singular treasure, very hard to pick a favourite Favorite track: Earth.

about

Off the back of Sarathy Korwar's much lauded Day To Day album comes the live album My East Is Your West - a performance that takes the fusion of Indian classical music with the jazz tradition further than its ever been before. Recorded live at London's Church Of Sound, the album is a homage to the great musicians of the 60s and 70s spiritual jazz movement, covering the likes of Alice Coltrane, Pharaoh Sanders, and Joe Henderson. Korwar plays alongside the UPAJ Collective, a group of highly-versatile musicians who share Sarathy's passion for jazz and Indian music and who have together managed to rebalance the cross-cultural relationship between 'Western' and 'Eastern' music.


With every record Sarathy releases his music becomes more exploratory and insightful, delving into his personal influences, which also inspire much of the music in the jazz scene that surrounds him. At a time where UK jazz is being heralded for its progression, innovation and far-reaching appeal to people from varying backgrounds, ‘My East Is Your West’ is an essential record that explores cultural and musical diversity in way that will continue to be relevant for years to come.
