Arturo Sandoval



Marius Preda (1977) comes from a musical family, where at the age of four, he received his first big toy from his grandmother. It was a Cimbalom! He immediately fell in love with this toy and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! Since then, he spent all of his days and nights playing the new instrument.

In 1993, Marius was invited to the Netherlands and in '95 he began to study the "Vibraphone"at the Jazz Department of the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands, where he graduated with a distinction. With the skills he accumulated over these years, Marius was able to develop a new way of playing the cimbalom. As a result he became the first cimbalom player in the history of Jazz!
Marius is one of the best musicians that I have worked with
during my entire music career.
