Sarathy Korwar - Day To Day (Ninja Tune)

Somewhere between Jazz and World Music, Day To Day, the debut album from percussionist & producer Sarathy Korwar is an exciting trip to this multicultural artist (US-born, raised in India, living in London) colourful global musical village.

Think 70's spiritual Jazz spiced up by Indian rhythmic elements. Sitars and tabla drums languishing vibes, acting as snake charmers for a saxophone, a piano or an electric guitar.

The addition of colourful street life samples have me thinking of Christophe Chassol work. A more essential parallel between the two artists: as for the french pianist masterpiece, Indiamore, Sarathy Korward's record is also a fascinating ode to open-mindedness, dialogue and exchange. Some basic values sometimes in short supply these days.

Out a few weeks ago on Ninja Tune, a couple of extracts below:
