Djevara* is an independent rock band based in London, England.
PUNK IS NOT A SOUND - Djevara play a kind of music that's been termed "post-Alles" by fans, described in print as "...a visceral and heady mixture of punk rock, crossover alternative metal, post-hardcore, spoken word/urban hip-hop, ambient experimental noise and progressive rock"
The band were heavily influenced by an era of rebellious underground music that they missed, from the legends of the alternative/punk scenes of the early 80s/90s and the DIY philosophy as expoused by bands such as Fugazi. As a result the band were encouraged to set up their own label, festivals, shows, art-spaces and tours and continue in their quest, over a decade and nearing 1000 shows later, to find freedom of expression through music and related artforms.
