That is the kind of catchy melody that makes you ask: but how were things before I discovered this band? And one week later, you realise that you've been listening to their music in a never-ending loop.
At the crossroads between Dead Can Dance and oriental traditional instruments, sometimes with a furtive evocation of Calexico, another main asset of Deleyaman is the smooth interlacing of the voices of Aret Madilian and Beatrice Valantin and the sound of duduk (a kind of oboe) and shêvi (flute), both Armenian traditional instruments.
Crosses seem to be the main line of their story and of their work: among styles, voices, countries (France, Armenia and the United States).
Sentinel is their excellent latest album but The Edge (2014) featured already some gems like Murdered Days and Mental Horizon.
