Lonny Ziblat, (or Lionel Ziblat) was born in Buenos Aires and has emigrated at the age of seven months to Israel. He was brought up with records that his parents had from the South American continent, amongst which were artists like Jaime Torres, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Chico Buarque & Piazzola.
Towards the age of 20 he played and recorded with the guys from Lord Flimnap, a group of strangely gifted young musicians. They made their debut album at the outstanding age of 15. Amongst them was Amit Poznansky, which later became a good friend. Amit had the phenomenal sound, somewhere bteween Bartok and Rock.
During the following years Lonny worked as a musician for the Israeli repertory theatre aswell as with different formations and groups. He had the honor of working with Chanoch Levin in the last theater play that he directed, shortly before he passed away. Levin is still known to be the most important play writer in Israel.
In the coming period Lonny lived in Holland where he studied Jazz guitar, Classical Composition, and Orchestral conducting. He composed and arranged music for different ensembles, choirs and orquestras in a veriety of styles. Amongst the groups he had the pleasure to work with were the Aregntinean duo Lerner & Moguilevsky, who were to be accompanied by the Dutch Flute Orchestra (24 flutes).
In 2005 he started producing the first Modest Midget album, completely on his own. During this period many more idea’s came up, along with priorly existing songs, which he slowly produced into two separate solo albums. One in Hebrew and one in English (which is the native language of the contemporary Britons). The result of which is the release of his first solo album – Songs From The Drawer, alongside Modest Midget’s debut album – The Great Prophecy of a Small Band.
He performs with the band and solo, alongside composing for other ensembles, choirs, orchestra’s and producing music for film.
