Drakmah

This ensemble was born with the purpose to satisfy our need to explore different musical worlds, whether those are deserted and cold or fertile and filled with life.

We love to combine opposing genres, instruments and ways of thinking and the key is to find a constant and necessary compromise.

Nothing else lies in Drakmah’s core and roots; indeed the foundation itself is due to David and Panda’s will to blend their nature, filled with electronic influences, with the (not necessarily) different ones of Mario and Gian, both closer to a more instrumental tradition.
