Montreux Jazz Festival ‘Audience-choice Award’ winner Talie Monin is a pioneer at the cutting-edge of a new and exciting musical current called – ‘JazzAfrique’ that seamlessly blends the rhythms and musical spirit of her native Africa with the sophistication and allure of contemporary jazz and world music styles. “In Talie Monin’s ’24 Strathay’ we hear the sophistication of Jazz melded with the joy of traditional African folk music. Showcasing Talie’s impressive voice, a collection of superb musicians and pristine production, 24 Strathay is exuberant elegance! This is a 21st-century musical alchemy that’s pointing jazz towards the future.” —Bob Studebaker, JazzWorks
