AKUNA ART

The AKUNA ART project began on 2006. At the begining, it was only instrumental music, but that as time went by has changed...

In 2009, "Rhapsody Of Enchanted Lands" (13 tracks) was the first released album. This first album was completly instrumental, inspirated by electronica, chillout, ambient and lounge music including many differents sounds of world-music and with an ambiance of spiritual soundscapes...

If Akuna Art wants to keep his specific sound of (ambient, electonica and world-music spirit), he sees other artists who are doing things that maybe he would like to collaborate with... And women singers have their own way of interpreting and understanding things. It was the second step of this project. In 2011, the second album “The Shadows Of The Pink Lounge" (14 tracks) is released, with Maïa Lic and Isabelle Lalande as featuring on 3 tracks. One of them (Erotic Lounge feat Maïa Lic) has been selected on DJ Manuel's compilation, Prophet Collection Vol.1 (Diventa music).

In July 2012, Akuna Art set to work preparing a third studio album. But the life has changed, and it's time to take a new direction. It takes time to make choices. All songs on this album will be sung ! The second half of 2013 was in part consecrated to the recording of this third album. Expanding on his electronic sound, this album sets new boundaries for the band. Their sound has also acquired a fresh new take on pop music, with 80's analogic sounds, and including also sounds of world-music... In 2014, here's "Poptronica Fantasy", an emotional pop-electronic fantasy built around 14 tracks.

In 2016, Akuna Art wants to take a new direction: it's time to go back to groovy origins. "Anthroplogy" is powered by a lineup of amazing featured artists (DGIO, Isa, Lea Milh, Elan Noelle and Mechi Pieretti) and some incredible players who joined Akuna Art. This 4th album features 15 tracks full of space and texture that mash up electro, pop, and funk with virtuoso musicianship.

Eternity Splinter is the fifth Akuna Art's studio release (nov 7, 2018), recorded around the world, with contributing artists from all over the world including France, USA, Marocco, Dominican Republic, mixed by Pontus Söderqvist (Sweden) and mastered by Sefi Carmel (UK). This album features a gorgeously arranged bouquet of pop, groove and synthpop with funk-driven guitars, deep bass lines, vintage synthetizers and powerful backing vocals. Although the emotional range is broad, sultry grooves and catchy beats remain the staple of this album.
