For the release of his first album, Day To Day, he attracted the support of the Steve Reid Foundation, whose patrons include Four Tet, Floating Points, Gilles Peterson, Koreless and Nick Woodmansey (aka Emanative).
The album fused jazz and electronics with the traditional folk music of the Siddi community in India, which combines East African, Sufi and Indian influences.
The musician and producer’s second album promises to have a darker edge. It features South Asian rappers and poets, many from the Dharavi slum in Mumbai where an energetic hip-hop scene is emerging.
