Earlier this year, Yorkston/Thorne/Khan released their third album Navarasa : Nine Emotions. At the heart of the album was the subcontinent’s navarasa; the nine (nava) emotions or sentiments (rasa) of the arts. This central unifying underpinning is a centuries-old organising principle and on their upcoming record, YTK have paired each song to one of these emotions.

Ahead of their UK headline tour, the trio (James Yorkston, Jon Thorne and Suhail Khan) shared the video for “Sukhe Phool”, the album’s opening track, which correlates to the emotion karuna (sorrow).

Director Jack Barraclough says of the video “James, Suhail and Jon’s collaboration is already so distinctive, and with the beautiful choreography added by Kali and Parbati, there is an intricate balance of all these performers coming together. So I wanted to direct Sukhe Phool with a light touch and just let the dancers and musicians do their thing, and make sure the video reflected this delicate balance.”
