iLenKa is an ensemble of varying dimensions (2 to 6 musicians) playing the music of composer and multi-instrumentalist Robert Len united with the screenings and scenarios created by violinist Carole Meneghel.
iLenKa’s entrancing music is the fusion of world music with lounge and jazz influences. Sometimes smooth, sometimes intense, sometimes cinematographic, sometimes virtuoso, the melodies and performances are characterized by their subtlety and wide range of emotions, combining the violin’s warmth with a multitude of surprising instruments from around the globe such as Tibetan bowls, Armenian duduk, Australian didgeridoo, Native American, Irish and Romanian flutes, Argentinian moseño, Peruvian and Cuban cajón, traditional flugelhorn, trumpet, cymbals, and more.
iLenKa is a very original new world music experience. Give it a listen.
