Tal Sandman is the guitarist and leader of the group based in the Arabic district of Tel Aviv, Jaffa. With a name drawn from her deep connection to the earth’s elements, the group’s sound is purely instrumental and at times evokes the early pioneering spirits of Ethiopian jazz with swirling trumpets climbing up and down a moody Tezeta Ethiopian scale.
