Event Information

Talinka creates a new distinctive sound that explores the unique and diverse journeys of four British musicians: Jenny Bliss, a baroque virtuoso artist, Yaron Stavi, one of Europe’s leading bass players, Gilad Atzmon, an internationally acclaimed Jazz saxophonist with an affinity for ethnic sounds and his wife Tali, a singer and actress.

The outcome of this musical journey is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure. The unusual choice of instruments and combination of personalities creates an amalgam of past and present, East and West. It creates a natural continuum between ethnic, jazz, tango and early music.

Vocals: Tali Atzmon

Viola da Gamba, Flute, Baroque Violin & Vocals: Jenny Bliss

Double Bass: Yaron Stavi

Bass Clarinet, Soprano Sax & Accordion: Gilad Atzmon

“Tali Atzmon’s voice features unerring sensitivity to pitch and highly expressive but never overelaborated lyrical delivery. Her approach to lyrics—a combination of her own material and standards—had a directness and sensitivity that favoured simplicity and nuance over the familiar range of vocal techniques which have become a staple of jazz singing over many years.”
