Cédric - Guitar
Self-taught guitarist with varied influences (from classical to metal), he notably played with the group DAMYO which shared the stage with Morgan Berthet (MYRATH, KLONE, EYELESS…) and Christophe Godin. He mainly holds the rhythm guitar in DARUMA, and he is the guarantor of the fat and powerful sound of the group.
Elodie - Vocals
A musician with a solid classical training, Elodie is the singer of AUSPEX, a symphonic metal group from Grenoble, with whom she has recorded two albums and created two symphonic shows with orchestra (AD ASTRA and L’HORLOGE ET LE PANTIN). She also worked in the live / studio project KALISIA, which took her to HELLFEST, and sang in the group ALKEMYST for a French tour. Elodie is the voice and soul of DARUMA; She was the one who brought the Japanese touch, gave the band its name, and designed the DARUMA figurine / mascot.
Hippolyte - Drums
Young by his age but certainly not by his talent, Hippolyte has a solid musical training and already several years of experience within different groups. Without a doubt, he has a great musical future, somewhere between metal and electronic music. He is obviously the youngest of DARUMA and brings to the group its modernity, its freshness and the formidable power of its double bass drum!
Julien - Guitar
Self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Julien has played in different groups, including KE ONDA, who has scoured the big festivals and French stages, until sharing the stage with Manu chao. He founded the acoustic duo JE with Elodie, and also participated with her in the symphony shows of the group AUSPEX. So lots of music, but he lacked a personal metal project. And here is DARUMA, in which he composes, writes and produces, and mixes his various influences (Rock, metal, prog, Celtic, folk, Latin, etc…)!
Sqwal - Bass
Self-taught musician with eclectic tastes (jazz, funk, metal, etc.), he started with the guitar, which he practiced for a few years, but Pascal quickly understood that the bass was definitely “his instrument”, the one through which he could express himself fully. He notably recorded and toured with the Grenoble groups ELTHARIA and SOMDRAVZ. A ball of energy and a great lover of powerful metal, he represents and transmits the raw strength of DARUMA!
