Amichai (Amijai) Ben Shalev Profile Photo.jpeg

My musical background is a combination of formal education and life experience.
I graduated from the "Manuel de Falla" Conservatory of Buenos Aires with Maestro Rodolfo Daluisio, focusing on the bandoneon as a solo instrument. In parallel to my formal studies I played traditional and contemporary tango. In my early days, I also played heavy metal and was exposed to Middle Eastern music, all these musical worlds coexist in me as a performer, composer and teacher.

Amichai (Amijai) Shalev is an engaging sensitive artist blessed with amazing technique, bellow control, and interpretive insight. He understands the character of each composition he performs and utilizes the appropriate tonal variables and rhythmic stability. In addition to the wonderful performance, he is able to infuse explanations and insight into the works as well as the technical construction and challenges of the instrument. His knowledge coupled with his immense talent is rare and not to be missed if occasion arises.
