Born in Taibe, Israel, in 1968, Kais Tekly learned drums with David Gotelman.

Tekly is currently a professional drummer who collaborates with different groups (such as Meshuar Ensemble) in Israel and abroad (Germany, Egypt).

In his work with the PHOENIX ensemble, Kais Tekli works as a percussionist, performing on the tabor, the frame drum, the darabuka, the tambourine and other instruments. He addresses a early Spanish and Ladino repertoire with an open approach, combining Arab rhythms within the texture of the traditional occidental early music drumming. 

He has been singled out by the critics for his sensitive and blending percussion in PHOENIX's program Convivencia.
