12 original songs two of which are instrumentals. The score for these
songs was written by me on Daw software and recorded in my home studio.
I would hope that these songs are more like sweet red wine than the
usual home brew we like to make.
by Davyd. RURU has more songs developed from guitar riffs. This has
given it a heaver sound. There are three acoustic versions and a
classical song called” little Tziporah" vocals by Shoshanah, Grace,
Tzukeet. Some time wrap used in "My Butterfly" gives it a spaced out
feel. Recorded in Kirikiriroa, in Aotearoa, (Hamilton, New
Zealand).Shakhan is still pumping out good homegrown stuff. Taste and
see for yourself.
is another brew from the home studio of Shakhan. Plenty of guitar
thrown into the mix gives Mangai the overall taste of INDIE ROCK. There
is also a pinch of folk and classical added. You will find in your
glass songs like "Gun", "Porn" and "Death Row", with love songs "Ha
Shem Has Given" and "Irish Orchid".
Released under indie record label Namohrd. Recorded in Kirikiriroa, in Aotearoa, (Hamilton, New Zealand), Mangai is home grown stuff with a good colour.
(Maori for light), features lyrics that like our debut album, relate to
what Shakhan believes to be truth and yet is more direct as to what
that truth is. Musically, there are some interesting
sounds on tracks such as “Old Man”, “Hands” and “You made the
Blue”. There is still much guitar based music hanging on in
there, and Shoshanah has made a return to composition and performance.
This album also features the female vocals of Grace and Tzukeet who
perform on flute and percussion.
Recorded in Kirikiriroa, Aetearoa (New Zealand) and released in 2011 by Namohrd.

together. This album would appeal to those who like acoustic
There is the same emphasis on colourful lyrics, covering a broad range of topics: Love songs like “Rose to Love” (acoustic and band versions), “Celtic Woman” (band and acoustic versions), the lyrical challenge of “Who can tame the tongue?” and “June for April and December” and on the joy of hang gliding in New Zealand “Worship at our Temple”.

as a set of 10 protest songs, our debut album has a dark lyrical
content within what is often a bright musical framework.
Keith (Muzikman) Hannaleck wrote “I truly admire this artist (Davyd) for having the intestinal fortitude to write and sing about what really goes on his mind, many of us would never dare … I mean you really have to think about the lyrics and that is probably why he sings/talks in a Lou Reed sort of way.”
Instruments include: acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, cello, flute, mouth organ and piano. All songs are composed, written and performed by Davyd except for “Journalist” which is by Shoshanah.
Recorded in London, England and released in 2004 by Namohrd.
