American vibraphonist of Israeli origin Eldad Tarmu is currently activating in the New York area, after teaching four years as a professor of Jazz Studies at Tibiscus University in Timisoara, Romania. He holds a Masters Degree in Afro-Latin Music from California State University Los Angeles and has recorded and performed with some of the most significant figures in their musical genres, including Poncho Sanchez, Ernie Watts, Taj Mahal, Cybil Shepherd, Freddie Hubbard, Billie Higgins, Frank Morgan and Ron Affif. He has performed in over twenty-five countries around the world in various festivals and concert tours. He has six CDs under his own name, including Get Up Close, which was number twenty on the US Jazz radio charts for four straight weeks. His latest CD, Songs for the Queen Of Bohemia, features the Tabac String Quartet from Banatul Philharmonic Orchestra of Timisoara and Israeli drummer Yoni Halevy. This project crosses jazz and Middle Eastern music with chamber music and has developed into a symphonic jazz project that made its debut on the stage of the Philharmonic in Timisoara on January 31, 2009.
