Element Band

East Coast Tour


Element Band's greatest aspiration has been to apply new styles and innovation to musical traditions. Under the direction of Ara Dabandjian, the band’s music has met that challenge and has gained a unique identity in the process. The bold arrangements partner rock melodies, traditional Armenian and the sounds of the Mediterranean; fiery and passionate notes waft in and out of the music with pulsing cadences, infusing listeners with a unique and upbeat energy. Its eight members, including three vocalists, come to life through the use of unique instruments, trademark arrangements, and a rare chemistry, to make their performance unparalleled.
