Birmingham Jazz Festival

Talinka are international jazz musician Gilad Atzmon, vocalists Tali Atzmon and Jenny Bliss with Yaron Stavi on Bass. Together they whip up an aromatic, heady mix of the kind of vocal jazz you might hear in a fever dream sequence filmed in a North African Cafe. This is exotic otherworldly music with one foot in 50s small band jazz, one in slightly hazy folk rock and a toe in classical music. It is all about atmosphere, drawing pictures and conjuring a smile in the listener. Talinka is a music-loving adventure.  extending beyond style and genre. They blend folk, early music, jazz, tango and free improvisation.  They believe in songs and beauty being vital forces of nature, simplicity, harmony and warmth.
