Tarun Balani is a drummer, composer, percussionist and music educator living in New Delhi, India. 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.
