She initially became known in Scotland for her work with Martin Swan, under the name Mouth Music, who became much acclaimed for their innovative world-folk fusion.
After the split with Mouth Music in 1991, Talitha continued to explore world music in parallel with Scottish music, forming a women's cappella group Sedenka.
Spiorad (Spirit) is a captivating, upbeat album, combining great singing, backed by a wide range of instruments.
