FACT Magazine premieres video for ‘Myvatn’

Tarana blend genres, distort realities in the video for ‘Myvatn’

The experimental duo share a new video from their upcoming Dälek-produced LP.

The duo Tarana nestles into a fascinating space between jazz, electronica, and the Bollywood and Indian folk music of project founder Ravish Momin’s childhood home. They explore it in length on their upcoming album A Fire Of Flowers Grows Around Us due September 18 via Wondermachine Records, but for now, watch the video by Alexandra Momin for ‘Myvatn’ which uses visual distortion as warped and fluid as the music behind it.

Tarana Live at the Rubin Museum of Art, July 17, 2015

Had an amazing time performing with Tarana last night at the Rubin Museum of Art! Nice to play to a packed crowd in our hometown of New York City 🙂
Big thanks to Rick Parker for the always inspiring blend of trombone & synths, and to special guest Alap Momin for the amazing live-mixing and electronics. Last but not least, deep gratitude to Fay Serafica for putting this show together for us!

Teaser for upcoming full-length album release

Excited to release the teaser for Tarana’s new album to be released on the super-bad newcomer Wondermachine Records (Zurich) this Fall, on 9.18.15. The “CleanFeed Records years” were amazing, but I wanted to forge a new path… 5 years in the making. Big thanks to Rick Parker for the amazing playing, and to Alexandra Momin for the video/production.

Tarana at Oberlin College on Oct. 9th, 2014

Tarana undertook a rare US tour from Oct. 8th through the 16th. We went through Pittsburgh (PA), Oberlin (OH), Beacon (NY), Washington (DC), and Louisville (KY).. We certainly logged a lot of miles and listened to tons of new music (Byrell The Great, Son Lux, Dead Rider, MikeQ, DJ Rashad, Land Lady, tUnE yArDs, Cakes The Killa, Angel Haze, Floex, Paris Monster, Addison Groove, Tarana, Divoli S’vere, and Uproot Andy), in addition to lots of old favorites and classics.
