**** CONTEMPORARY ALBUM OF THE MONTH The Guardian

Off the back of his critically acclaimed previous projects, indo-jazz percussionist, producer and composer Sarathy Korwar and his newly formed UPAJ Collective present now their debut record, ‘My East Is Your West’.

For this show, 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, which is as beguiling as it is edifying.

At a time where UK jazz is being heralded for its progression, innovation and far-reaching appeal to people from varying backgrounds, ‘My East Is Your West’ is an essential record. Recorded live at Church Of Sound in early 2018, the album explores cultural and musical diversity in a way that will continue to be relevant for years to come.

Made up of estimable musicians that share Sarathy’s passion for jazz and Indian music, UPAJ collective consists of a blend of London's new jazz talent with Indian classical instrumentation
