Collaborations and Programmes



How many sounds can two cellos and a human voice produce?
The Dutch-Israeli Zenith Duo is a refreshing new voice in the classical and ethnic music scene. Performing original compositions, folk tunes, baroque sonatas and music dedicated to them by modern composers, the duo takes the listener on a journey, exploring the diversity and beauty of the cello and the human voice.

Think you know how a jazz band sounds like?
Dare to err, and listen to the song.

The German Jazz band stretches the genre's boundaries to every possible direction.

This band is an animal, growling, running, dancing, cuddling.

The panda is here.



In these days Talia is working on a new versatile solo programme of works for cello solo and voice.

And suddenly all the lips were softly whispering her name. Corona, that's no game to win, you cannot own her, See her walking by, the whole world stops. Corona, that’s no game to win, I gotta warn ya, So you better run away Now she is here, it's becoming crystal clear All the doors locked, all the people running in fear, Children staying at home, men and women never coming near. ‘Cause she’s occupying our hearts, occupying our minds, occupying our souls, occupying our lungs with every breath we take, we can feel her around, She doesn’t make a sound but there''s a fever in the air. All the heads turn now to you, All the hearts beat just for you As your beauty’s walking through I want them to see me too Never thought it could be true So why don’t you tell me all your secrets? Corona, no game to win, I gotta warn ya, See her walking by, the whole world stops. Corona, no game to win, you can't just own her, So you better run away You better run away, now, fast as you can, ‘cause you can see the span of her plan I’m begging you, Corona, please don’t take my woman, my man, My children, father, mother, brother, sister, just ‘cause you can, ‘Cause I can see you now scanning my clan. Corona, look at her walking the streets like a primadonna , Acting like she’s gonna give us something that we wanna have But we should learn now How it ‘s gonna turn how Everything we earned now Is washed away and burned Cause we’re at her feet, trying to figure out how we defeat All of the madness out there in the street As we are dancing to her beat Before she takes her final bow.

Zenith Duo - Song to Kyla From Zenith Duo's album YONA released 1.5.2020 Get the album on Bandcamp: Spotify: Or Itunes: Talia Erdal: Cello & Voice Irene Kok : Cello Music & lyrics by Talia Erdal Sound & Mix by Zvika Hirshler Video by Tzur Kotzer (English translation below) שיר לקיילה: הרחק מעבר לשדה ואחרי המסילה האופק יושב, מונח מעבר לקירות סוגרים ואחרי חלון אטום פרוש המרחב המחכה רק לך. ואת רוצה ללכת, לפרוץ את החלון ללכת וללכת, לעוף רחוק רחוק לא לעצור לרגע, לא להביט אחור. עופי מעבר לאופק, לכי ואל תדעי לאן תני לרוח לסרוק את שערך בין כה את לא נועדת לכאן. ואת תמריאי לשחקים, ואז מן הגבהים תראי את כל השדה לכבודך נפתח תעופי על כנפי רוחות שישאוך למרחקים ותתני רק להן להדריך אותך. ואת רוצה ללכת... וכל מה שתשאירי מאחור הוא רק סדק פעור בתוך החלון שיכניס פנימה את האור. English Lyrics: Far away beyond the field and after the train tracks The horizon is laid. Beyond the closing walls and past the sealed window The open space is waiting just for you. And you want to go, break through the window, Fly into the distance without stopping, without looking back. Fly beyond the horizon, go without knowing where, Let the wind comb your hair, Anyway you were not meant to be here. And you will soar up to the skies, and from the heights you will see The field opening up for you. You will fly on wind’s wings which will carry you far away And let them be your only guide. And you want to go…. And the only thing you will leave behind Is a gaping hole in the window That will let the light in.
