Drummer Ravish Momin's Trio Tarana is one of the most consistently rewarding and intriguing groups to grace the roster of Portugal's Clean Feed Records. Formed in 2003, the group has notably featured violin and oud as its instrumental color of choice in staggeringly complex yet hard-swinging compositions. Momin--and Tarana--are a genre-fogging unit, blending jazz improvisation with forms from South and East Asia and North Africa. However, this mixing of genres is endemic to Momin's working methods and has expanded to his appearances with other ensembles like the rock band Fulton Lights, tenorman Kalaparusha's ensemble The Light and pianist Ursel Schlicht's Ex Tempore.
AAJ Contributor Clifford Allen spoke with Momin about current projects, the integration of electronic instruments, his unique approach to the drum kit, and more.
