/ʤeværæ/ 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 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.

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