    Teslim is a quartet of composer/instrumentalists who perform traditional Turkish, Greek and Balkan music as well as new compositions inspired by those traditions. Teslim is Kaila Flexer, violin; Elana Brutman, Cretan lyra with sympathetic strings; Gari Hegedus, oud, Turkish lutes, mandocello and other strings; and Joshua Mellinger, frame drum and other percussion.

    They are excited to be joined by special guest Nakul Deshpande (lyra, saz and lauoto).

He currently lives in North Carolina and has traveled to California for two concerts with Teslim. Listen to the band here.

    “Certainly striking, certainly beautiful… everything one could look for in bluegrass-tinged Americana” — AmericanaUK

    “…vivid songwriting and transportive vocals…” — Folk Alley

    “A burgeoning force behind the Appalachian roots revival” — PopMatters

    Anya will be joined by Billy Cardine, recognized as a slide guitar pioneer, taking the Dobro into uncharted territory. Jerry Douglas says “…an amazing Dobro player…he is fluent in everything that I do and everybody who has come before. I couldn’t pick a better example of where the Dobro is now or what the possibilities are with the instrument.” Listen to him here.
