Timna-Tal Music  Presents…An Evening of Arabic Music with Faisal Zedan Trio

(Tes-LEEM) means both ‘commit’ and ‘surrender’ in Turkish and features founders Kaila Flexer – violin and Gari Hegedus – oud, Turkish saz, mandocello and tarhu. Newest members include Elana Brutman, Cretan lyra with sympathetic strings and Joshua Mellinger, percussion (frame drum, zarb, tabla, cajon and darabuka). All four musicians also compose contemporary modal music. The quartet performs these compositions as well as Turkish classical pieces, Turkish and Greek folk music as well as repertoire from the Balkans.

Press comments on Teslim;

"Together they make exquisite music, drawing inspiration from Sephardic, Greek and Turkish traditional sources. Their tunes are exotic, and their virtuosity is spellbinding."                             

PVV, Billboard Magazine

"The twin stringed chemistry and virtuosic interplay is extraordinary as Kaila and Gari forge a fresh musical idiom inspired by the cross-pollinating currents of Turkish, Sephardic and Cretan/Greek music.” –Dore Stein, Tangents Radio, KALW

"Teslim is not only unique because it allows us to perceive the common musical heritage that so many different cultures draw upon, but also because the music on this disc brings the magic of the world alive. This is a beautiful collection that will remind you of what power music can hold in the hands of skilled artists whose love for what they do comes through in every note they play.”
  –Richard Marcus, BlogCritics Magazine

To all our Friends and supporters of TimnaTal Music

After a couple of meetings with the owner of Watermelon Music, we have decided to collaborate. Watermelon has the perfect space for an intimate setting for live music. It has a stage with stage lighting, great acoustics and excellent sound system. In short, the kind of venue I was always hoping for. It is very close to village Homes with easy access and plenty of parking. It's located at the corner of Lake Blvd x W. Covell Blvd.

We are planning to start the new season with the our dear friends who are known together as TESLIM. Ticket sales will be handled by Watermelon Music.
