Christian Tamburr

Christian Tamburr is a multi-instrumentalist, accomplished on the piano and trapset as well as world and orchestral percussion. However, his true talent is exhibited on his instrument of choice, the vibraphone.

Christian is currently a member of the critically acclaimed Noel Freidline Quintet, a five-piece acoustic jazz group as well as the Grammy Award winning group The Dazz Band.
