I love music in all its forms, but I mainly am inspired by jazz, blues and rock. My primary instruments are acoustic and electric guitars, but I also play bass guitar, drums including doumbek, tar and ngoni and other percussion instruments. I use a keyboard to drive MIDI samples. I am part of a duo with Jerred Seveyka, "Seveyka and Tobalske," and we have one official release "Decompression Stop." I also regularly collaborate with Jean-Luc Saintot in the Jura, France and Ken Dial in Montana, USA.
