NTS Radio: with Sarathy Korwar & Liam Rees

A very special show this week, as our friends Sarathy Korwar and Liam Rees joined us, bringing tabla and viola respectively – not to mention armfuls of classical Indian, spiritual and other far out records. Sarathy’s fantastic new album, Day To Day, is out now on Ninja Tune, so we chatted about that, and he gave us a special live rendition of ‘Eyes Closed’, from the LP. Later in the show, Sarathy and Liam performed two live improvisations, looping treated tabla and droning viola into a whirling, fluttering aerosol that filled the studio like camphor.

Check out our Radio 15 tape comp, which features Liam and Sarathy playing the rubab and tabla. Really magical stuff.
