Artist in Residence 2016: Zohar Fresco (Israel)
We are happy to present this year's Tamburi Mundi Artist in Residence, the Israeli percussionist Zohar Izhak Fresco!
Zohar is said to be the pioneer on the Tof Miriam, this more than 3000 years old frame drum from the Middle East. But also the darbuka and other frame drums like bendir, tar or daf belong to his repertoire of instruments. Being a son of a family with Turkish roots, he discovered the frame drum already in his early years. His style is influenced by Arabian, Indian, Persian and Turkish influences. Meanwhile, Zohar is a demanded musician and lecturer of his own playing technique. He is renowned as a master of his arts.
We are looking forward to this outstanding musician and to great concert projects with him!
