David Zasloff

This extremely talented guy is a jazz comedian. He has written two books: “Zen Judaism, The Joy of Suffering” and “The Complete Book of Everything, Part I”.

David Zasloff and his band perform a different kind of music: "zen jazz". This is a combination of African, Japanese, Jewish, Latin, Caribbean and bebop. Besides playing trumpet, piano, percussion, guitar, autoharp and shofar, this inspiring musician is a master of shakuhachi.

We met David while we were surfing Youtube to see what is shofar, and what does it look and sound like. This amazing person plays hatikvah with shofar, which is already very hard to blow (just like ney).

David Zasloff is not that famous except a limited part of the USA. For more information, please visit the musician's homepage by clicking on the title of this post.
