One of the few female frame drummers on the world stage today, Grammy-nominated musician Marla Leigh celebrates the inseparable nature of spirituality and music with her DEBUT album and music video: Rhythms of Tof Miriam.

Inspired by musical traditions from various ancient cultures, this album project was recorded in Israel. At its core, Rhythms of Tof Miriam is about staying positive through challenging times by using the universal language of rhythm to help us rediscover our genuine connections. Marla reflects, “The Tof Miriam experience is timeless but fresh, spicy and rich, comforting yet mysterious. I want to encourage listeners to reorient themselves - internally and externally - with the therapeutic effects of music.”

The album pays homage to the prophetess Miriam who played the frame drum in Biblical times, and to the ancient lineage of women frame drummers.
