London-based percussionist and composer Sarathy Korwar opened ears all over the globe with his 2016 Ninja Tune debut, Day to Day. The album created an inexhaustible knot of field-recorded sacred songs by chanting Sidis, wide-ranging ambient sonics, beats, and modal jazz. It offered a wide-angle aural hearing of what was transpiring on the explosively creative South London scene.
In the last few years, we've been fortunate to see a resurgence, and reimagining, of the polyamorous love affair between hip hop, jazz, and radical politics. In the increasingly nightmarish world we're all inhabiting, work of this nature is integral to keep the resisters dancing, shouting, awake. More Arriving, the latest from UK-based drummer/tablaist and composer Sarathy Korwar, is a confrontational, musically far-reaching addition to the revolution music toolkit.
