Ravish Momin in Concert
Carriage Barn Concert Series—Fall 2018
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | Ravish Momin is a versatile drummer whose music resides in a fascinating space between underground electronic dance music traditions, experimental music, and Indian Folk music. His unique approach has led him to work as a sideman with a diverse cast of musicians ranging from pop-star Shakira to legendary avant-saxophonist Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre (AACM). Momin blends improvisation and global rhythms with forward-thinking electronics. He has developed a hybrid electro-acoustic drumset, and triggers and manipulates melodies 'on the fly' to further blur the lines between composition and improvisation. The concert will include a solo set as well as appearances by Hui Cox, Susie Ibarra, and Michael Wimberly.
“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.” —Rochester City Newspaper
