Yorkston/Thorne/Khan produce a musical fusion of jazz, folk and Indian music which is without precedent.

They return to Komedia this Spring to promote the release of their new albumNeuk Wight Delhi All-Starson 7th April. It follows the band’s debut album, 2016’s critically acclaimedEverything Sacred, and presents a confluence of currents, among them the north Indian sarangi; jazz-tinged bass, reminiscent in places of Danny Thompson; acoustic guitar that owes a debt to Elizabeth Cotton, Dick Gaughan and Mississippi John Hurt; and three very different vocalists – James Yorkston (East Neuk of Fife), Jon Thorne (Isle of Wight) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (New Delhi).

This collaboration is both harmonious and singular and in fact, Yorkston/Thorne/Khan’s Everything Sacred may be the only precedent. “The combination of a singer-songwriter, a jazz bassist and an Indian classical sarangi player is totally unheard off” says Khan.

A collection of traditional Indian and UK folk songs, beautiful originals and idiosyncratic covers,Neuk Wight Delhi All-Starsdoes not only bring together Indian classical music and jazz, then, but kosmische too; Yorkston also cites dub reggae, Uilleann pipes and the Madagascan guitarist D’Gary as influences. That breadth, says Thorne, is critical: “I think YTK is a fine example of how music operates without boundaries as a common international language and a source of cross-cultural unity. It’s an important message in the times that we live in.”
