New York Jazz - Eden Ladin

Eden Ladin was born in a family of musical talent: his father was a renowned Israeli drummer. Eden chose a lyrical path for himself as well, opting for piano instead of drums. His talent didn’t go unnoticed: the young musician received a scholarship allowing jazz studies abroad. Besides, Eden has taught at the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York. The unique style born in-between trips to New York from Tel Aviv and back gave a green light for high critical acclaim, numerous collaborations, and festival performances. This May, Eden will give a concert in a cozy 32JazzClub on Podil in Kyiv.
