Cimbalom, accordion, upright bass, trumpet, and guitar
The Cory Beers Cimbalom Band is an ensemble of notable musicians based in Los Angeles, specializing in Romanian, Moldovan and Eastern European traditional music. The ensemble is tasked with the convincing and creative rendering of the coolest music from this region. The group makes use of an instrument called the Cimbalom (aka “tambal” in Romania and Moldova), which is an enormous hammered dulcimer with hundreds of strings traditionally played in the Romania/Moldova region in a most interesting manner. This, in addition to upright bass, accordion, and occasionally trumpet and guitar, forms a highly energetic ensemble.
