Percussionist Chen Zimbalista is a force of nature. Exhibiting preternatural musical skills since he was a child, this Israeli-born performer has gone on to master over 40 exotic instruments from dozens of countries, and has proven himself equally adept at performing complex Classical compositions as he is at home with World music and jazz. His energetic shows are a visceral experience that must be seen, not only heard. The L.A. Times calls his show, “intense, dynamic, charismatic, precise, boundless, extraordinary... melodic.”
