Considered by his peers as a "six-string virtuouso," Tariqh has no doubt earned such a distinction. He holds the position of Musical Director for multi-platinum recording artist, Josh Groban and was formally the Chair of the Guitar Department at L.A. Music Academy.

Tariqh's resume is stacked with legendary names: He's worked with artists like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, George Duke, Bette Midler, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Tom Scott, Whitney Houston, Aerosmith and the Backstreet Boys.

NOMAD and Tariqh chat about the particulars of such a career, about the L.A. scene, and how Tariqh got to the place he is today. Tariqh reminds us that art and commerce werent necessarily meant to mix!
