iLenKa is an ensemble of varying dimensions based on composer and multi-instrumentalist Robert Len (a graduate of the Concordia University and the Université de Montréal) and violinist Carole Meneghel (a graduate of the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal.)

iLenKa's music − composed by Robert Len − is sometimes sweet, sometimes virtuoso, sometimes cinematographic...

It combines the violin's warmth with many surprising instruments coming from around the world (to name a few: Tibetan bowls, Armenian duduk, Native American, Irish and Romanian flutes, moseño, flugelhorn, trumpet, cajón, cymbals, Australian duduk), and it is featuring a mixing of world music with influences of lounge and jazz.

iLenKa plays a fascinating music that makes you dream from the first hearing...

Robert Len, who holds a Bachelor degree in trumpet from Concordia University, a Master's degree in trumpet from Université de Montréal and a Certificate in education from UQAM, has an impressive track record. He has played many times at the Montreal International Jazz Festival (with the Millenium Orchestra Big Band, Colin James, Oliver Jones, Barclay Road, Shirley Basset and Diane Schurr). He has also played in the Montreal's Olympic Stadium (with Orchestre Métropolitain) and at the Toronto Jazz Festival (with the Dennis Christiansen Big Band). With this ensemble, he has also toured Western Canada and Europe.

He has appeared on television (on CFCF with Ranee Lee and Buddy Greco, among others), and has an extensive discography.

Over the years, Robert Len has developed a passion for multi-ethnic instruments, particularly for countless flutes and percussions. The music he creates, in which passion, fieriness, freedom and zen spirit become entangled, is especially appealing.
