Marianne Navon Trio
Americana inflected with Israeli nuance. Original songs penned by Marianne Navon, influenced by American roots and a long sojourn in the Middle East and other places. Joined by Denise Glover on violin, and Leo Barrer on cajon/darbukah.
Marianne grew up in California USA, gathering musical influences from southern roots, then spent a decade in Australia playing Americana before landing in Israel where her musical repertoire expanded to include the rhythms and modes of her environment. In Nelson since mid-2017, and currently playing with two local Nelsonians, they explore her collection of American roots and Eastern inspired songs about the forces of nature, love and the flow of life.
