When The Waters Refused Our History (New LP)Sunken Cages
Label: On The Corner Records
Sunken Cages is the moniker for Ravish Momin, an Indian-born drummer, electronic music producer and educator. For the past decade, Momin has been experimenting with enhancing his acoustic drum sounds with electronic ones, and has crafted a unique electro- acoustic approach. He triggers sounds and textures, layers live-loops and manipulates them ‘on the fly’, to blur the lines between composition and improvisation. While rooted in Indian folk and Black Music traditions, Sunken Cages is also influenced by the street sounds of South African G’com, Angolan Kuduro and Egyptian Mahraganat.
