Yorkston Thorne Khan are touring the UK in support of their third album, Navarasa: Nine Emotions, tackling Robert Burns and Sufi poetry via Dick Gaughan and Amīr Khusrow Dehlavī, traditional Scottish songs, ragas and their own spidery compositions.

Yorkston Thorne Khan are songwriter James Yorkston (guitar, nyckelharpa, voice), jazz musician Jon Thorne (double bass, voice) and 8th generation sarangi player and vocalist Suhail Yusuf Khan. Meeting by chance backstage in 2015 and playing together ever since, Yorkston Thorne Khan’s musical explorations are well-informed by their rich musical heritage but never reverential, preferring to run with an energy and fun that pushes them to new ground, Rolling Stone calling their Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars album “a game changing masterpiece”.

YTK have toured substantially around Europe and India, and as both the jazz and the Indian classical music worlds are renowned for their improvisation, it’s no surprise Yorkston Thorne Khan continue to tease the set structures of their material throughout, leaving every performance fresh and inspired.
