Israel @ 60 with Chen Zimbalista and Friends
Israeli percussionist Chen Zimbalista has dazzled audiences around the world with an enchanting array of rhythmic sounds that he cajoles from more than forty instruments, played with his lightening quick hands, some of them at the same time. His music - a euphonious blend of pulses and beats - defies classification. A true feast for the senses, his programs are taken from classical, blues, jazz and occasionally rock idioms.
To celebrate Israels 60th birthday, Chen will focus the nights energy on contemporary Israeli composers with pieces by Weisenberg, Shemer, Gronich and a few of his own. The program will also feature pieces by Gershwin, Bloch and Sichon.
