Book tickets for Tal Gamlieli Trio 'Change of Heart'

A recipient of a Downbeat Magazine Award for Outstanding Performance, Tal possesses a highly expressive, lyrical and harmonious musical style, and conveys a wide sweep of emotions, colors and textures. Tal feeds off a broad and exotic range of cultural baggage.

Growing up in a village in the hills near Jerusalem, Israel, his early years were informed by the infectious rhythms and ethnic seasoning of his father’s Kurdish roots, while his German-born maternal grandparents introduced him to the world of western classical music. His musical sources of inspiration reflect that eclectic hinterland, and include such iconic envelope pushers as trumpeter Chet Baker and bassist Charlie Haden, seminal Brazilian pianist and composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, Armenian pianist Tigran Hamasyan and internationally renowned Israeli bass player Avishai Cohen.

From a very early age it was clear to Tal that music can bring people together through its power to evoke universal feelings. This led him to pursue a career in music, and he continues to reach out to people of all social sensibilities, and cultural and ethnic stripes, evoking a sense of togetherness wherever he plays.
