Deleyaman was founded in 2000 by the euro-american musician and multi-instrumentalist Aret Madilian. They are the first alternative indie band to have included the ancient wind instrument called the “duduk” in their line-up and many compositions.
Deleyaman’s musical influences are vast. From post-punk to cold wave to ambient, minimalist, atmospheric and classical music, their enigmatic sound reaches far beyond the music heard in mainstream genres.
The band members of Deleyaman don’t pay much attention to trends. They follow their own creative path off the beaten tracks. They’ve released six albums to date and continue to create a timeless music, defying the narrow vision of single genres.
Deleyaman’s newest album, The Edge, was released on July 4, 2014 on TTO Records. The album has received critical praise from the dutch and german music press and online.
