A nice summary of what the ‘new’ Tarana sounds like, was just published in the Rochester CityNewspaper.
Here’s an excerpt from the concert preview:
“You’ve never heard (or seen) a drummer like Ravish Momin. Whether he’s playing the drum set with his hands, seamlessly fusing his drums with a laptop full of electronic sounds, or creating vocal percussion, Momin is reinventing his instrument. His group, Tarana, has changed personnel over the years, but all of his band-mates are kindred spirits when it comes to finding new routes through the music. At the core of Tarana’s music is free improvisation; along the way it passes through strains of Indian and Middle Eastern music and, of course, jazz.”- Ron Netsky (March 2, 2011)
The concert takes place Tuesday, March 8, 8 p.m. at Bop Shop Atrium, 274 N. Goodman St. $15 donation requested. 271-3354, bopshop.com.
