In 2012, at age 27, Tarun released his debut record “Sacred World”, which has been said to “point to the future of jazz in India.” Tarun’s music is driven by a restless desire to be a holistic artist, inspired by his Indian roots and synthesized into his work. An inward and spiritual experience for Tarun, music has had a very special impact on his life, in finding his voice through the drums, and then in building a career in performance and teaching.
