Collaborators and friends

A woefully incomplete list of musicians that have played a role in the history of the band.

Ez3kiel is a French electro-dub band. DAAU appears on their albums “Barb4ry” and “Naphtaline”, and also joined them onstage for two long tours in 2004 and 2005, from which a live album was made.

Angelique Willkie

An Pierlé

Harmonie Ypriana

Alma Flamenca is (was?) a flamenco group who joined DAAU for a couple of concerts in 1999. They can be heard on one track of the “Ghost Tracks” CD. Other than that, I know next to nothing about them!

    Hi, do you have any information about the band being still producing music?
    I wonder if they disbanded or not, the website is down (DAAU and Radical Duke) and no album have been recorded since 2017.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I do not have any information at all but I am wondering the same thing. The website has been down before — it’s not the first time that happened. Radical Duke was gone even before the daau.com website went away.

    Let’s hope that they will come up with a new project that gives them a good reason to re-group. Time will tell!
