Rodrigo Amarante

Rodrigo Amarante

Caribbean Music / Latin American Music

Brazilian multi-instrumentalist, Rodrigo Amarante is the genius behind the hypnotic Narcos’ opening song, “Tuyo” that enchanted millions across the world. Before becoming a household name with this haunting melody, Amarante collaborated with Devendra Barnhart and Tom Zé and received accolades with his bands Los Hermanos and Little Joy (with Stokes‘ band members Binki Shapiro and Fabrizio Moretti). His solo album Cavalo was a captivating mix of instrumental music and delicate singing. This creator of magical, sublime music will definitely be hard to resist at the Worldstock festival.

Sarathy Korwar

Sarathy Korwar

Indian Folk / Jazz / Electronic

Jazz composer, percussionist and producer Sarathy Korwar is heavily inspired by the traditional music of the migrant Siddi community of southern India. In fact, Korwar travelled through Gujarat with the Sidi Sidi Troupe of Ratapur and used the hypnotic field recordings for his debut album Day to Day. The result is a rather unusual blend of Indian devotional-style folk music, percussive African-derived polyrhythms, jazz and electronic music.
