/je-vær-æ/ noun - "The concept/myth of a time and/or place at which exists the end of intolerance, and the beginning of justice". Believed to have origins in an ancient Asian dialect, and is thought to usually be interpreted poetically.


Djevara* is an independent rock band based in London, England.

PUNK IS NOT A SOUND - Djevara play a kind of music termed "post-Alles" by fans, "...a visceral and heady mixture of punk rock, crossover alternative metal, post-hardcore, spoken word/urban hip-hop, ambient experimental noise and progressive rock"

Having grown up under the influence of the DIY alternative/punk scenes of the early 80s/90s expoused by bands such as Fugazi, the band have tried to live the philosophy right from the beginning: as a result set up their own label, festivals, shows, art-spaces and tours and continue in their quest to find freedom of expression through music and related artforms.

*silent or soft "d" as in "djembe"
