Katima I heard this on KALW radio and fell in love. It took a week to track it down, now I bought it! It's mystical, lovely beyond words. I come from a western Sufi background and have a deep appreciation of music from the middle east! Resonates with my heart in indescribable ways! Favorite track: Angle of Repose.

In Teslim's second album, Kaila Flexer and Gari Hegedus are joined by Elana Brutman and Josh Mellinger as well as numerous special guests.

This album is a tribute to Kaila's parents, Abe and Bobbie, who met when they were 11 years old and have been together for over 7 decades! The pieces were composed for them over several years to celebrate milestones as well as in response to Bobbie's diagnosis four years ago and treatment for Grey Zone Lymphoma. She has now been in remission for 3 years and counting!

The musicians of Teslim come from different musical worlds, but all share a love of Turkish and Greek folk music, Turkish classical music and other Balkan and Middle Eastern traditions. They thrive on study and rehearsal, and as composers love working collaboratively arranging one another's work.
