Davaar : where acoustic music meets electronica

The more you pick at the wound, the stronger it bleeds – Dirty Little Secret

Welcome to Davaar

Davaar, comprised of Sara Marlowe, Dave McMillan and a MacBook Air - explores the intersection of acoustic and electronic music in composition and live performance - with a few laughs along the way. From Air to Oh Susanna, Beck to electro-acoustic originals through a little Blind Faith, Davaar has something to get your feet moving, your glass tipping, and your heart singing along.

New Songs

We continue to add new tunes to our live sets, including Waterlog, a rockin' version of Dirty Little Secret, and two of Sara's classics: Fall Down On My Knees and Truth Be Told. We also pay tribute to our favourites and influences with some new covers too. All hail Air, Beck, Massive Attack, Pearl Jam and of course, Elbow... we can't get enough of Elbow!
