Jelloslave, the two cello, drum and tablas quartet, performs this Saturday, Feb. 15 at the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Center by calling 218-385-3339.

Admission is $12 advance reservation or $15 at the door.

Student admission is always $5.

The Cultural Center is located at 24 Main Ave. N. in New York Mills.

The quartet will introduce local audiences to their grooving improvisational music featuring original compositions and an eclectic repertoire that takes listeners on a journey through time and genre from Bach to Led Zeppelin and Leonard Cohen, folk music, jazz, and the music of the world.

Jelloslave, which originally formed as a duo in 2003 by cellists Jacqueline Ultan and Michelle Kinney, has since become an established quartet with the addition of drummer Greg Schutte and Gary Waryan, tablas.

Known for their dynamic improvisational performances, the foursome pours heart and soul into an eclectic original repertoire ranging from mesmerizing fusions of jazz, Afro-Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Indian rhythms, to surprising pop music interpretations.

 The band also performs the improvisational rock/jazz influenced compositions of Jelloslave cellists Michelle Kinney and Jacqueline Ultan.

The group gratefully acknowledges their receipt of a 2013-14 Minnesota State Arts Board touring grant to introduce their work to audiences throughout Minnesota.
