Canadian musician Jordana Talsky has grown into herself. Her new immersive EP “Zahava” undertakes all the musical roles using only her voice and body. “Zahava” is a fascinating all-vocal looping release rooted in deep human themes everyone can relate with. Jordana Talsky emotes the sounds behind her awareness that our fragmented identities are always in conflict but can be ‘harmonized as we grow to be at home in ourselves.’
From the mouth of Jordana Talsky :
It is an all-vocal looping record. Hery voice or body made all the soundly.
To become a loop artist and learn to do a new thing by herself, she has come up against my insecurities and criticisms and has found that in many ways. This creative journey has mirrored the challenge I experience to be at home. Many of us have different parts of our identities that are in conflict but can be harmonized as we grow into ourselves. She is a person of several voices and a choir of one. “Zahava” is her middle name which means ‘golden’ in Hebrew. It reminds her of the gold in every one of us which is beauty, wisdom and power. She will be best harnessed when she learn to feel at home. Her music certainly will inspire you to find home in her music.
The resulting music on “Zahava” is original, hypnotic and compelling
