Sarathy Korwar returns with new album KALAK. The follow up to the politically charged, award-winning More Arriving is an Indo-futurist manifesto - in rhythmic step with the past and the present, it sets out to describe a route forward. It celebrates a rich South Asian culture of music and literature, which resonates with spirituality and community, while envisaging a better future from those building blocks.

“A remarkable meeting of jazz, hip-hop, Indian classical music and radical politics”the Quietus
“A timely soundtrack to these divisive times”Songlines
“Korwar takes in the political and radical history of jazz as a voice of the disenfranchised, and applies it to the Indian diaspora experience in contemporary Britain” The Vinyl Factory
“One of the best things we’ve been able to play on the radio for a very long time” Gilles Peterson, BBC 6 Music
