She is a true virtuoso with pure refined talent at its best.

Meital Bob Marley
Meital is the ultimate Bob Marley fan. She is from Israel and says that she was born hearing Bob’s music being played by her Dad. She was 9 months old when Bob Marley transitioned. Her wealth of knowledge about Bob Marley is impressive.
