Sonic Transmissions: Sarathy Korwar

Friday 10 Mar 2023 at 19:00, Roundhouse

Join Skin Deep for their latest Sonic Transmissions session – an evening of conversation, live performance and collective listening with US-born, Indian-raised, London-based drummer, producer, composer and bandleader Sarathy Korwar.

Sarathy has established himself as one of the most original and compelling voices in the UK jazz scene. He has collaborated/ toured with the likes of Kamasi Washington, Shabaka Hutchings, Yussef Kamal and Moses Boyd.

In this Sonic Transmissions session we will be exploring Sarathy’s latest album KALAK – a South-Asian 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.
