Talinka defies boundaries between styles and genres. It is where folk, early music, jazz and tango merge into simplicity, harmony and warmth.
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 the leading bass players in Europe, Gilad Atzmon, an internationally acclaimed Jazz saxophonist with an affinity for ethnic sounds and his wife Tali, whose singing has been paired up with her theatrical career.
“It seemed there was nothing this enterprising quartet couldn't do to make the most of a wide range of material...That’s Jazz.” Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal
“Terrific emotional depth...very entertaining and richly enjoyable” Peter Jones, Bebop Spoken Here
“Tali is an amazingly soulful jazz singer, whose voice captivates while the music weaves a magical spell on the listener, drawing you in; almost warm, gentle and at times haunting.”
Mel Allen, The Progressive Aspect
