Talila: Le Temps Des Bonheurs

 

The songs of the Jewish diaspora recalled from a childhood spent listening to ‘old Yiddish 78s, like relics from another world’ were the inspiration for Le temps des bonheurs. Being French, Talila also absorbed plenty of classic chanson, and there are also nods to klezmer, Latin music and even rock. Her exquisite timing and phrasing mark her out as a seasoned singer, and in pianist/clarinettist Teddy Lasry she has the perfect instrumental foil.
