Event Details

Ravish Momin is a versatile percussionist/composer/electronic musician/educator currently residing in New York City. He has received prestigious performance grants from Meet The Composer, The Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, US Artists International and Arts International. His unique approach has led him to also work as a sideman with a diverse range of musicians, ranging from pop-star Shakira to legendary avant-saxophonist Kalaparusha of the AACM (est. Chicago, 1969) He has led the shape-shifting band Tarana on international stages since 2004, and also works as a music teaching artist with inner-city youth in NYC.

New Press 2017:
“Watching Ravish Momin play is a bewildering experience. Drums are supposed to be a non-melodic instrument, yet as he sits alone onstage playing his kit, you can hear eerie, spectral tunes emanating from somewhere. There are vocal samples and looped beats flying through the air, too, but by now the average music fan knows what a musician can do with effects and pedals to create those elements. This is something different. It\’s a percussionist creating his own musical world, triggering electronic effects in a way that works them into his relentlessly propulsive playing. ”
