From Toby Tobias
Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Toby Tobias has immersed himself in all genres of American Music of the last 50 years. His interest in African Rhythms & World Music, coupled with his keen ear for highly intuitive arrangements, has been the hallmark of his writing and performance styles, and he has garnered a strong following of listeners on Long Island and beyond. A graduate of the prestigious Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem, Israel, he continues to search for material that stays as close to his musical roots as possible, while at the same time reaching for new and exciting musical universes. Whether as a solo artist, as a duo or in full ensemble setting, the music is unmistakably Toby!
