Ark 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 campus in Valencia, Spain. 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 performed at Hard Rock Cafe Boston, YouBloom Festival in Los Angeles, the historic Sidewalk Cafe at NYC, as well as The Middle East in Cambridge, MA and other venues around Boston.
