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 journies 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. 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. It transcends beyond musical boundaries. It is all about music for the sake of music.

“Talinka – such an evocative name – wittily appropriate for this intimate set so sensitively arranged around Tali’s straight from the heart, true and soulful voice.” Robert Wyatt

“Talinka – is a fascinating project and Tali Atzmon has made a big impression with her musical début as a leader.” Ian Mann, THE JAZZ MANN

“There’s an airy spaciousness about Talinka’s music, a music that is never far from the taste of tears.” Andy Robson, Jazzwise

“Terrific emotional depth…Very entertaining and richly enjoyable… Keening, remorseful music, but full of beauty.” Peter Jones, Bebop Spoken Here
