Ravish Momin

Ravish Momin was born in Hyderabad, India, and spent his childhood in Bombay, and Bahrain (Middle East). He grew up listening to a wide array of Asian Music. Trio Tarana’s music is specific to the interpretations of various Asian musical traditions, including the music of Japanese Taiko Drum Ensembles, Afghani folk songs, Hindu chants and North/South Indian rhythm cycles, while being based in non-idiomatic improvisation.


Momin obtained a B.Sc in Civil/Environmental Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He has studied drumset with Andrew Cyrille, Bob Moses, and Ian Froman. He has also studied North Indian Classical percussion with Misha Masud, a disciple of Pandit Taranth Rao.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
