Acoustic power quartet Taarka captures an embraceable and multifaceted sound, deriving from influences that include bluegrass, pop rock, folk, old-time, Gypsy-Jazz, and Celtic, with energy, emotion, and "gravity-defying" talent (R2 Magazine, UK). Led by the husband-and-wife team of David Pelta-Tiller (mandolin, tenor guitar, vocals) and Enion Pelta-Tiller (five-string violin, vocals), Taarka fills out its unique sound with award-winning bassist Troy Robey and prodigious young guitarist Mike Robinson.
Taarka's live shows strike a balance between well-crafted songs and spirited instrumentals, expanding on its beginnings as a purely instrumental string band putting a modern spin on Gypsy and Eastern European folk music. Sophisticated listeners would be able to distill flavors of Western and Eastern folk traditions, jazz, rock, bluegrass, old-time, Gypsy, Indian, and Celtic music all in a string band setting. Taarka has lately been gaining notice for their songwriting, which is informed by traditional bluegrass, oldtime and folk from America and Europe, 19th century poetry, and rock inspired by performances with some of the greatest names in songwriting today, including Darrell Scott, Greg Brown, James McMurtry, and Nathan Moore, but which incorporates sweeping pop and popping Gypsy elements.
