Robert Een performs from his Obie Award winning score for Hiroshima Maiden, the puppet/theater piece by Dan Hurlin. Just released on the Innova label, the music features the composer on cello and voice, joined by Bill Ruyle on hammer dulcimer and percussion, and Jeff Berman on vibraphone, marimba, lap dulcimer and percussion.

“The incredible music by Robert Een mixes jazz, Asian, vocal and instrumental music in moving and melodious ways.”

— Paulanne Simmons, Brooklyn Papers
