Ma Tan is with Ma Tan in San José, Costa Rica.

Got to hang out with these brilliant kids from the tougher neighborhoods of San Jose (Costa Rica), who have been studying programming, robotics and English with a local NGO called FundaVida.

They had really good questions ("What do you do when you're afraid?") and loved the little show I gave them of playing music using hand movements - so I had to let them try it out for themselves!
It was a truly great moment witnessing how quickly and intuitively an 11 year old kid starts playing a beat using the Airstrument, without any instructions, and even more inspiring to see the effect that forward-thinking education can have on the lives of children and our society at large.

3½ years ago my friend Dov Rosen invited me and 2 other (incredible) musicians to perform blindfolded - improvising music while he places different instruments in our hands and touches our heads to let us know when to play, when to sing and when to pause.
Since that show, his concept grew into the Blind Orchestra - which has toured both Israel and India with changing groups of musicians surrendering their sight and getting lost in the sound of the moment.

Tonight we're coming full circle as I join an absolutely killer line up onstage in Tel Aviv - following blindly to wherever the music leads.
