Sarathy Korwar embraces multitudes on ‘More Arriving’

His second studio album is out now.

Last Friday, percussionist and producer Sarathy Korwar delivered his second studio album, More Arriving.

Over the course of two and a half years, Korwar—who was born in the US, raised in India and now based in London—worked with a varied cast of collaborators to craft the eight-track album. Indian rappers like Delhi Sultanate and Prabh Deep (who both guest on “Coolie”) as well as MC Mawali and Trap Poju give More Arriving a hip hop edge. London poet Zia Ahmed and Abu Dhabi-based writer Deepak Unnikrishnan also appear.

The variety of collaborators is intended to “reinforc[e] the fact that there is no single, all-encompassing brown story or narrative,” Korwar explains in a statement on his website. The record’s title is an explicit reference to immigration and politicians’ fear-mongering rhetoric surrounding the issue. “It’s a tongue-in-cheek play on the fact that yes, there will be more people coming and you’re gonna have to deal with it!” Korwar says.
