Biography

TAARKA, led by David Tiller and Enion Pelta-Tiller, is the natural next step in the evolution of music. The group features high-energy performance and innovative compositions, expanding a musical canvas by drawing on the sounds of old and new from world folk, jazz, classical, and rock energy into a synergy of swirling gypsy world dervish for a truly unique and exciting brand of music performed with master musicianship. Both David and Enion are also members of the national touring progressive folk act ThaMuseMeant, and have been touring with this group as well since 2003.

David Tiller - mandolin, 5ths tuned guitar, and vocals, and Enion Pelta-Tiller – 5 string violin and vocals began playing and writing together in the spring of 2001. They met through playing together in a Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based band called Brooklyn Browngrass. They moved to Oregon to continue to develop their unique sound, and most recently moved to Colorado to explore the heart of acoustic music with an electric energy. A rotating cast of excellent musicians join them for live shows, including Eric Thorin (Open Road, Matt Flinner, Tony Furtado), and Damian Erskine (Tony Furtado).
The Players

 

David Tiller began playing guitar at age 8, spurred on by his musician father. His childhood in Virginia was spent learning the abundance of bluegrass and Celtic music there, but by age 14 he was enriching his knowledge with classical and jazz guitar training at the North Carolina School of the Arts, and began exploring the mandolin. With a diligent practice schedule and great aspirations, David took on the mandolin full time in his late teens, and was a founding member of the celebrated High Sierra Festival Record label's band ThaMuseMeant, based in New Mexico. In ThaMuseMeant's 8 year history, they toured all over the United States, sharing stages with the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, Sheryl Crow, Ricki Lee Jones, Blues Traveler, String Cheese Incident, Leftover Salmon, YMSB, Greg Brown, and many others. In 2000, when the band broke up, David moved to NYC to follow his heart and study jazz, where he met Enion Pelta in Brooklyn Browngrass. They began writing together and formed the group Taarka to feature their music.

Enion Pelta-Tiller began classical violin studies at age 3, but her education was always supplemented by improvisation lessons from her jazz guitarist father. By 16 she had taught herself to compose impromptu melodies in styles from classical sonatas to East Indian ragas and jazz standards. She attended Peabody Institute in Baltimore, MD, working towards a viola performance degree, while also studying english at Johns Hopkins. She, eventually landing in NYC, where she performed cutting edge music straddling punk, free jazz, and classical with various local musicians, and landed a gig with the crown prince of Hungary's New Wave music scene, Menyhart Jeno, as the violinist in Mr Con and the Bioneers. She traveled to Hungary in the summer of 2001 to play the main stage at the Pepsi Sziget, Europe's largest music festival, playing immediately before Run DMC and Morcheeba. Upon her return she focused more on composing and performing the music she and David had been working on together, and the two decided to make a life of it. Enion has shared stages (literally) with Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bob Weir and Vince Welnick of the Grateful Dead, Darol Anger of fiddle fame, and many others.
