“Tali is an Amazingly soulful jazz singer, whose voice captivates while the music weaves a magical spell on the listener” Mel Allen, The Progressive Aspect
“ Talinka is a gem, everything flowing, gently adventurous, soothing, highly sonorous, and pregnant with earthy jazz refrains.” Mark S. Tucker, Veritas Vampirus
‘Rainbow Over Kolonaki’ follows Talinka’s acclaimed 2017 debut.
Talinka is led by Israeli-born and London-based vocalist and filmmaker Tali Atzmon. The group creates a new distinctive sound which explores the diverse musical journeys of four British musicians, each already distinguished in their fields. Tali Atzmon was a renowned actress and singer in Israel; Jenny Bliss is a baroque virtuoso artist who plays viola da gamba, baroque violin, and sings on this album; Yaron Stavi is one of the leading double bass players in Europe and Gilad Atzmon is an internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist, performing here on bass clarinet, soprano saxophone, Tenor sax, accordion and guitar. Talinka defies boundaries, creating a natural continuum between folk, jazz, tango and early music. The unusual choice of instruments and combination of personalities create an amalgam of past and present, East and West.
The album features original compositions, English folk music and classic songs from The Great American Songbook.
“For us, the love of music extends beyond style and genre. We believe in songs and beauty being vital forces of nature. We adhere to simplicity, harmony and warmth. The outcome is a natural breathing, deep and spacious sonic adventure.”
