Since completing his master’s degree at the New England

Conservatory in Boston in 2008, Tal shared the stage with some of

the world’s leading jazz musicians such as Danilo Perez, Jerry

Bergonzy, Joanne Brackeen, Liz Wright and many other

outstanding performers.

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.
