LIAF PRESENTS TOMMY KHOSLA & JAWARI

Tommy Khosla & Jawari

Sitar – Tommy Khosla

Percussion – Gregorio Merchán

Saxophone – Billie Sophoclides

Guitar & Oud – Mow Ray

Sitarist and composer Tommy Khosla challenges stereotypes about the musical spaces sitar can be played in. Taking inspiration from spiritual jazz, bossa and electronic music, they are developing a contemporary voice in music whilst continuing their classical training with Anoushka Shankar and Ricky Romain.

The culmination of this most recent musical development can be seen in Jawari, a collective formed in 2022. Members include Latin Grammy awardee Gregorio Merchán on percussion, Billie Sophoclides on saxophone and special guest Mow Ray on guitar and oud. Drawing on the eclectic musical lineages of its members, which include merengue, jazz and Indian Classical Music, to name a few, Jawari’s sound is a unique statement in the current indo-jazz scene.

Following multiple sell-out gigs in London last year, the band is working towards their debut album, supported by Help Musicians, which will be released in 2024.
