Known for their “benchmark performances” (Mark Houghton), the Mēla guitar quartet’s “musicianship makes you forget that you are listening to four guitars and carries you to a different sound world” (Thérèse Wassily Saba, Gendai Guitar magazine), their playing “shines, shimmers with sparkling clarity, what’s more, they play from memory and make pieces their own; wonderful music making!” (Phillip Houghton)

The quartet are passionate about expanding the repertoire of guitar quartet.
