Oxford Contemporary Music

Sarathy Korwar & UPAJ Collective

Indo-jazz percussionist, producer and composer Sarathy Korwar and his newly formed UPAJ Collective present music from their debut record, My East Is Your West.

Sarathy and his fellow musicians explore and challenge the concepts of ‘East’ and ‘West’ and the intersection at which western jazz meets Indian music. The result is a truly contemplative live set traversing fervent percussion, meditative passages of ambience, raw improvisation and traditional Indian music.

Made up of estimable musicians that share Sarathy’s passion for jazz and Indian music, UPAJ Collective consists of 10 members including the likes of adroit Indian musicians such as Aravindhan Baheerathan (bansuri), Jasdeep Singh Degun (sitar), Aditya Prakash (vocals) and B C Manjunath (percussion) alongside John Ball (santoor and tabla) and respected jazz musicians including Tamar Osborn (sax and flute), Alastair MacSween (piano), Jesse Bannister (saxophonist), Giuliano Modarelli (guitar) and Domenico Angarano (bass).
