Parus is a psychedelic trance music project of twin brothers Mark and Valentin Tarasov that was born in the summer of 2000. This is their story…

While growing up in Riga, the capital city of Latvia, Valentin Tarasov was attending musical school, learning piano, Mark was learning guitar.
After the break-up of the Soviet Union, they moved to California, where in 1996 together with their older brother Eugene they formed a Russian rock band called Still Night, with Valentin on the keyboard and Mark playing the bass guitar. Soon after, they were introduced to trance music and the idea of Parus was born.

It began with turntables in a Palo Alto apartment, evolving into a semi-professional studio in the garage of their house. By September of 2000, they were writing their own tracks as project Parus took sail.

Parus has performed on numerous stages in America, Portugal and Japan, including the amazing performances at the Boom Festival in Portugal, Burning Man Festival and the annual LoveFest in San Francisco.
