Ismail Fencioglu


Enchanting, virtuosic, ornate – Ismail Fencioglu is a true master of Turkish music. He has mesmerized Canadian, European and Turkish audiences with his fleet-fingered oud playing, soaring tenor vocals and encyclopedic knowledge of the classical Turkish music repertoire. A graduate of the State Conservatory of Istanbul Technical University, he has performed throughout Turkey both live and on television with other masters of the genre, including Alaeddin Yavasca, Bekir Sidki Sezgin, Erkan Ogur and Tulin Yakarcelik. Residing now in Montreal, Canada, Ismail has partnered with high-energy, blues-rock inspired klezmer group Shtreiml to perform a set of  "Turkish Roots & Jewish Blues." Through compelling original compositions and new arrangements of traditional folk melodies, the ensemble explores the ancient connections between Jewish and Turkish music. Joined by harmonica innovator Jason Rosenblatt (harmonica, keys), Rachel Lemisch (trombone), Thierry Arsenault (drums) and Joel Kerr (bass) the group's set has been labeled "explosive" (Halifax Chronicle Herald) and "exhilarating" (Rootsworld).



Founded in 2002, Montreal/Philly-based Shtreiml offers a high-octane mix of not-so-traditional Eastern-European Jewish and Turkish music. Led by harmonica innovator Jason Rosenblatt, one of the few people worldwide who can play the diatonic harmonica (a.k.a. blues harp) chromatically, Shtreiml's blues-rock infused set delivers a new look at some centuries old folk music. Joined by Rachel Lemisch (trombone), Thierry Arsenault (drums), Adam Stotland (bass) and Brooklyn-based freak Michael Winograd (clarinet) the group's set has been labeled "explosive" (Halifax Chronicle Herald) and "exhilarating" (Rootsworld). Frequent guests include Istanbul native Ismail Hakki Fencioglu (oud, vocals), Yiddish folksong revivalist Abigail Rosenblatt and Montreal hip-hop guru Josh "Socalled" Dolgin. Shtreiml has performed at festivals and venues in Canada, The U.S. and Europe.

Have Shtreiml perform at your wedding! Shtreiml has performed at hundreds of private affairs throughout Canada, The US and Israel and is available to perform at your wedding or private function. The band's wedding repertoire is diverse and ranges in style from the music of Shlomo Carlebach and Chassidic to classic rock, R&B and bluegrass. In addition to our core band members, we work with numerous other musicians and can add to our instrumentation as you see fit.
