Tali Rubinstein

Just like most kids, Tali began playing the recorder in 2nd grade. Unlike most, she never stopped. A student of Bracha Kol, Tali was professionally trained in classical baroque and renaissance music from a young age. She studied in prestigious music institutions in Israel (Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts, Rimon School, The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music) and received scholarships and prizes (AICF Scholarships 1994-2006, 2nd prize at the International Recorder Festival Contest in Utrecht, Gilad Shein Memorial Scholarship). Tali later received a full tuition scholarship to attend Berklee College (Boston), and became the first recorder player ever to study there. She was chosen to represent Berklee at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington D.C.​, and upon graduation, received the W.S. Kenney award for outstanding achievement.

In recent years, Tali has been collaborating with multiple Grammy Award winning producer Javier Limón (Spain) on several projects, including: “Tal y Tali” (together with pianist Tal Even-Tzur), “Promesas De Tierra” (with musicians from Palestine, Spain, and Israel), and on the 2015 Latin Grammy Award winning album “Entre 20 Aguas” (alongside Chick Corea, Dhafer Youssef, Michel Camilo, Chucho Valdéz and Alejandro Sanz). In fall 2017 Tali joined the “Flamenco Legends” tour curated by Limón, with Paco de Lucia’s original band. Currently, Tali is a member of OQ Original Quartet, together with Layth Sidiq (Iraq), Shilpa Ananth (India), and Limón, signed by the prestigious IMG Artists.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
