Tali Rubinstein is a unique recorder player, composer, and vocalist, pioneering her own style of contemporary recorder playing and composing, derived from classical baroque, jazz, funk, and traditional Israeli music. Using extensive techniques and incorporating diverse musical languages into her music, Tali challenges this 17th century instrument to fit in a modern setting, creating a new sound blend of ancient and current.
