Ravish Momin is an Indian-born drummer, electronic music producer and educator residing in New York City. A Structural/Civil Engineer by training, Momin also privately studied with Jazz master-drummer Andrew Cyrille for years while he worked as an engineer in New York City in the late 1990s. He quit his engineering practice in 2003 to become a professional musician. His unique approach quickly led him to work as a sideman with a diverse cast of musicians ranging from to legendary avant-saxophonist Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre (of the AACM) to pop-star Shakira. Momin is the recipient of grants/commissions from New Music USA, Meet The Composer, Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, US Artists International and NYSCA (New York State Council on the Arts.)
