"Duo HILA have just dropped 21 their well-crafted, sharp and original first album . The combination of jazz, Los Angeles beat-scene and the vibrations of 80s and 90s Soviet Armenia make it a striking and unprecedented fusion. These kind of nostalgic and unconventional references forcefully shake the codes of mainstream culture to create a sincere, raw and intimate expression.

“HILA” was born from a spontaneous and intense creative impulse between Artyom Manukyan, a Los Angeles-based Armenian cellist and his partner in crime, David Kiledjian aka Dawatile a French multi-instrumentist (Dowdelin, FOWATILE) of Armenian descent. This project is proving to be a true master stroke given that it only took 21 days for the duo to make it a reality.

“HILA” was made in less a moon cycle but captivates and electrifies audiences upon its first outings. “H.I.L.A” colors the warmth of the Californian “High” with Armenian vibes. The artists chose this name for their creation since both have a close and valuable connection to these locales."
