About Ark...

Ark Music Duo, Boston, MA, blends Eastern European and Traditional Jazz styles in original songs and arrangements. Alper Tuzcu (Istanbul, Turkey) and Danielle Angeloni (Dallas, TX) began creating while studying at Berklee College of Music's Valencia Spain Campus. While in Spain, they wrote their first single "Shattered," experimented with Mediterranean rhythms and textures, and performed throughout Valencia.


Ark's influences include The XX, Hiatus Kaiyote, Ibeyi, Robert Glasper, Buika, and Flamenco music. Ark recently traveled to YouBloom Festival in Los Angeles, where they performed among talented acts from all over the world. Shortly after Ark performed at the historic Sidewalk Cafe NYC, as well as The Middle East in Cambridge MA and other venues around Boston. Ark enjoys staying original, laughing, creating, and looks forward to releasing their first EP and touring in 2016.
