"A homage to the city in all its hustle and bustle"


Chalo co-founder Jitwam has shared a new single, ‘Brooklyn Ballers'.

Out now via Roya, the self-proclaimed “psychedelic soul savant” describes the jazzy track "as a homage to the city in all its hustle and bustle. The magic in the air, that can make dreams come true and can turn your fears into your worst nightmares.”

As well as co-founding Chalo – an interdisciplinary creative project with a focus on South Asia and its diaspora – he runs The Jazz Diaries label and has remixed Laraaji, collaborated with Folamour, and had a track on ‘Fabric Presents... Maribou State’ compilation.

In April, Jitwam will play at Dialled In festival at EartH, Hackney alongside  Yung Singh, DJ Mag artist to watch for 2022 Mixtress b2b Maleek, NTS resident anu, former Swing Ting partystarter Samrai, Grammy-nominated sitarist and composer Anoushka Shankar and many more.
