ABOUT THE BAND
We have distinguished ourselves in the music industry with a signature style that harnesses the beauty of the traditional string quartet and then completely revolutionizes it.
From New York's Radio City Hall to Moscow's Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, our musicians have had the privilege to appear alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry: Idina Menzel, Michael Bublé, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Branford Marsalis, Kygo, The Roots, and The Who among them.
Our singular sound is built on years in the business, a passion for innovation, and a love of making music together.
An experience you won't forget.
Only with ESQ.

Favorite Song: Sweet Child O’ Mine
Alfiya Latypova AKA Alfiya Glow is a brand of her own. A versatile artist, she is a producer, DJ, and a master of the effects pedals. She can turn the violin into an electric guitar and shred til you can’t feel your face. Check her out at alfiyaglow.com
Prima Donna of the Violin
Favorite Song: Havana
Aisha Dossumova is a world-class musician, concert soloist, and violin professor. Her beautiful sound and flawless technique is the epitome of Elegance. There is no one better to perform our unique arrangements, which weave together pop, rock, and classical music in surprising ways (i.e. Mozart quotes in Havana!).
Violist, Singer, and Ukelele Slinger
Favorite Song: Señorita
Jennifer Boorum is the energizer of the group. When’s she’s not grooving on the viola, she’s fronting the band with her captivating vocals and stage presence. Behind the scenes she partners with Ray to produce our events and develop our signature style.

The Beat Dropper, Arranger, Producer
(...and cellist, too!)
Rajli (Ray) Bicolli does it all. From writing all the signature mashups to mixing the beats, he plays a mean cello with his hands and rocks the rhythm machine with his feet. He runs the show from start to finish and somehow doesn’t break a sweat (even when he does the moonwalk or the limbo while playing the electric cello — no, really, there’s proof).
