Baladino, a world music ensemble from Israel, pose in unique and humourous ways with their instruments. One is holding a standing bass above their head, one is holding a tambourine, one is holding a violin above the tambourine player's head, the singer poses with a scarf in hand, and one pretends to play a clarinet.
