More Arriving (The Leaf Label)
Born in the US, educated in India and now in London, the percussionist and bandleader Sarathy Korwar captures the sound of the modern Indian diaspora in a pluralistic but divided Britain. With his thunderous percussion underpinning everything, his collaborators range from Hindi rappers to Indian classical vocalists. This is the sound of the new British-Asian underground. A Top of the World in #150.
