    Sarathy Korwar – More Arriving [Leaf]

    Morning Mari*’s album of the week is Sarathy Korwar‘s ‘More Arriving‘ out on Leaf Label.

    We live in divisive times. Multiculturalism rises hand-in-hand with racial tensions, and politicians seem powerless to even bring people within earshot of their convoluted message. It’s time for a different perspective.

    On his second studio album, More Arriving, Sarathy Korwar blasts out his own vibrant, pluralistic missive for the world to hear. This is not necessarily a record of unity; it’s an honest reflection of Korwar’s experience of being an Indian in a divided Britain. Recorded over two and a half years in India and the UK, More Arriving draws on the nascent rap scenes of Mumbai and New Delhi, incorporating spoken word and Korwar’s own Indian classical and jazz instrumentation. This is a record born of confrontation; one for our confrontational times.

    With this album, Korwar expands his politicised narrative to envelop the entire diaspora. “This is a modern brown record. The kind of record that a contemporary Indian living in the UK for the past 10 years would make,”Korwar says. “This is what Indian music sounds like to me right now.” It all begins with the title: “More Arriving comes from the scaremongering around Brexit,” Korwar says. “It’s a tongue-in-cheek play on the fact that there are more people coming and you’ll have to deal with it!” Through this defiance, Korwar takes clear pride in the knotty mix of his identity – harking back to the new India of the Mumbai hip-hop kids, as well as identifying with London’s cultural diversity. “I want the idea of brown pride to come through,” he says. “My voice is one amongst a thousand, but this record is a snapshot of something much greater than myself. It’s the chance to send a message.

    Also, if you are in London, make sure to join Sarathy and his collaborators at Moth Club on the 25th of September for the album release concert.

    Tracklist:

    1. Mumbay (feat. MC Mawali)
    2. Jallaad
    3. Coolie (feat. Delhi Sultanate & Prabh Deep)
    4. Bol (feat. Zia Ahmed & Aditya Prakash)

    Dego – Too Much [2000 Black]

    Morning Mari*‘s album of the week for 9-13 September is Dego‘s ‘Too Much‘ LP out on 2000 Black Records.

    After a steady stream of releases from the 2000 Black label which serve as a first course, Dego returns with his third album – a full length LP of his contemporary adventures in modern sound.

    This album combines Dego’s consistent forward looking musical explorations with a host of instrumental and vocal collaborators introducing us to new talents and reminding us of those we may have heard before. Dego continues to find new perspectives within the musical landscape.

    Collaborating with singers and songwriters all expressing a distinct sense of where, collectively, we are now. There can be no doubt that this is a time of questions in every way, changes in the world and industry that will affect us all. How and what role music plays in this journey is explored as with any artist in a personal and pensive way from a tear to a smile. There is no preaching here, only statements and explorations. Individuality and sonic diversity combine and reflect the many inspirations and evolutions of style. Cooking up a strong and distinct genre-defying mix of soul, two step, funk, jazz, boogie and R&B, all dance music’s that focus on heritage and natural rhythms.

    Listening to the music is a relief and delight for lovers of groove and song-craft. It’s a 21st century statement accessible and raw, whilst highly advanced in sound design and production. Holistic in breadth and deep in vision, it provides a way into this music for many, and challenges the cultural conversation about jazz without compromising or pandering. Music that utilizes a raw and sincere true openness narrative.

    Tracklist:

    1. A Strong Move For Truth ft Nadine Charles
    2. Good Morning ft Samii
    3. Remini Dream ft Ivana Santilli
    4. I Don’t Wanna Know ft Obenewa
    5. Unknown Faults
    6. Life Can Be Unreal ft Sarina Leah
    7. Too Much ft Sharlene Hector
    8. You Are Virgo
    9. Come Of Age
    10. Just Leave It ft Lady Alma
    11. Numero 15
    12. Ogawa Okasan Said Just Play
    13. A Where Pringle Deh?
    14. My Standards Are (Not) Too High
