Amir Gwirtzman, a multi-culti artist, plays more than 20 different woodwinds, reeds, horns, pipes, flutes and percussion instruments as a one-man band called Inhale–Exhale. In his performances, he constructs an ensemble sound for most of his songs, playing one instrument part on top of another until the music crescendos into a blend of rhythms, melody and harmony.

Gwirtzman infuses Inhale-Exhale with a combination of R&B, jazz and rhythms of Cuban jazz, along with Middle Eastern, Gypsy, Jewish klezmer, Armenian, Irish Celtic and Native American influences. He has performed in Manila and Peru and had a very successful tour across the US as a visiting artist of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.

Gwirtzman has performed and recorded with many artists, such as Philip Glass, Mino Cinellu, Johnny Almendra (Ray Barreto & Mongo Santamaria’s Big-Band), as well as some of Israel’s finest musicians, including Rita, Shlomo Artzi, Rami Kleinstein, Yehuda Poliker, Arik Einstein, Shalom Hanoch, Shlomi Shabbat and Gidi Gov.

In his current solo project, this one-man big band will introduce dancer Keren Rosenberg and other guest musicians.

November 18 at 8:30 p.m. Tel Aviv Museum, 27 Rehov Shaul Hamelech
