About Marimba Rasta
“Through out my career as a marimba player, I have felt that the marimba reaches out for rather small audiences, although it has a magical sound and a very appealing look. One day, I took my marimba to the streets and played it. For most of the people it was the first time they have ever seen a marimba played live. I have learned that in order to present the instrument in the most effective way, I have to choose songs that people know and love. Since then, I have been arranging many famous popular covers and playing them on the streets of Tel Aviv”.
