Tal grew up in a small community of Yemenites, Moroccans and
Kurds in the Jerusalem hills. Tal’s father’s family immigrated to
Israel from Kurdistan bringing with them the music and tribal
dances of the region. From the other side, Tal's mother’s family
that fled from Germany in 1936 exposed Tal to the world of
classical music and the European culture. Tal's music is influenced
from his background. His upbringing led him to build a rich musical
style that is reflected in his compositions such as "Negev," Tal’s
arrangement of the Jewish song "Dror Yikra" which combines
North African rhythms with a Yemenite melody and "Dania" based
on the Kurdish Debka dance rhythm.
