One big artist that uses MISSOM products is Edith Habraken, the phenomenal performer of Basler drum and marimba.
Born in 1965 in Holland, she studied percussion at the Conservatorium Amsterdam and lives since 1988 with her family in Basel/Switzerland.
Edith Habraken plays both improvising and composed pieces, using every object as a percussion instrument. The audience has a special loyalty to Edith Habraken and always reacts when Edith enters in the improvisation mode with humour.
Her specialities and favourites are the Basler drum and the marimba. She’s considered a virtuous player, always surprising and refreshing.
She also leads her foundation SMEH (Percussion- and marimba school Edith Habraken), and carries out her solo programm in the theatres.
