Tryp Tych Tryo - Warsaw Conjunction album launch (featuring Sarathy Korwar)DJs - Pete OntheCorner (On the Corner Records), Adrian Magrys & Matt Surma (Lanquidity Records)

No Longer Available

As part of OntheCorner's 10th year, the label is exploring new artistic collaborations and label innovations. For Tryp Tych Tryo the London-Polish label Lanquidity has come onboard for 'Warsaw Conjunction'. The Tryp Tych Tryo's first studio recording has a line-up of three giants in contemporary jazz innovators; Wojtek Mazolewski, Tamar Osborn and Natchyet Wakili. Based on improvisation in the studio the three musicians collide and simmer with local and global roots, expressions from the biographical to the collective conscious.

Originally brought together for an OntheCorner Worldwide FM live session 'Get your jazz together' at Klub Spatif in Warsaw, the Tryo line-up is intended to be ever-evolving around its three core musicians. This album launch gig will have Sarathy Korwar guesting on drums/percussion and the performance prior (Moods in Zurich) will feature Ayo Salawu (Kokoroko).

DJ support on the day will come from the label's Pete OntheCorner, Adrian Magrys and Matt Surma who will be equally exploring tripartite territories

Sarathy Korwar

Sarathy Korwar is a drummer, composer and producer raised in India and based in London. Korwar has established himself as one of the most original and compelling voices in the UK jazz scene. His music fuses jazz, electronics, Indian folk and classical influences with a focus on decoloniality, community, race and transcendence. His latest album, KALAK, is an Indo-futurist manifesto that celebrates a rich South Asian culture of music and literature and urges a cure for historical amnesia. The Guardian placed it at #2 in their Best Global Albums of 2022. In 2023, KALAK won the Songlines award for best album (Asia/Pacific).

Korwar has toured and collaborated with the likes of Anoushka Shankar, Kamasi Washington, Metropole Orchestra and Shabaka Hutchings and performed at festivals/venues including Sydney Opera House, North Sea Jazz Festival, London Jazz Festival, Dekmantel and many more. His music has been featured in the New York Times, The Guardian, The Quietus, Pitchfork and Rolling Stone along with support from NPR, KEXP, BBC Radio 1, Radio 3 and 6 Music.

Korwar has since established himself as one of the most original and compelling voices in the UK jazz scene, leading the UPAJ Collective - a loose band of South Asian jazz and Indian classical musicians brought together through a love of collaboration and improvisation who set up a residency at the Jazz Café in London. Korwar has collaborated with the likes of Shabaka Hutchings (The Comet Is Coming), clarinettist Arun Ghosh and producer Hieroglyphic Being, as well as groups Penya and Ill Considered. He has toured with Kamasi Washington, Yussef Kamaal and Moses Boyd.
