The AKUNA ART project began on 2006. At the begining, it was only instrumental music, but that as time went by has changed...

Philippe Duvignac is both the creator and the producer of the project. A woman singer, Yaël B, often provided vocals on Akuna Art tracks. In 2009, "Rhapsody Of Enchanted Lands" (13 tracks) was the first released album. This first album was completly instrumental, inspirated by electronica, chillout, ambient and lounge music including many differents sounds of world-music and with an ambiance of spiritual soundscapes...

In 2010, Rafik Taourth (percussion) also began to contribute to Akuna Art's project. If Philippe wants to keep the sound of Akuna Art (ambient, electonica and world-music spirit), he sees other artists who are doing things that maybe he would like to collaborate with... And women singers have their own way of interpreting and understanding things. It was the second step of this project. In 2011, the second album “The Shadows Of The Pink Lounge" (14 tracks) is released, with Maïa Lic and Isabelle Lalande as featuring on 3 tracks. One of them (Erotic Lounge feat Maïa Lic) has been selected on DJ Manuel's compilation, Prophet Collection Vol.1 (Diventa music).

In July 2012, Philippe set to work preparing a third studio album. But the life has changed, and it's time to take a new direction. It takes time to make choices. All songs on this album will be sung ! The second half of 2013 was in part consecrated to the recording of this third album. Expanding on his electronic sound, this album sets new boundaries for the band. Their sound has also acquired a fresh new take on pop music, with 80's analogic sounds, and including also sounds of world-music... 4 women singers (Audrey H., Isabelle Lalande, Maïa Lic and Lea Milh) appear as featuring. Rafik Taourh and Yaël B are always in this adventure. Jacques Milh has co-arranged several songs and played keyboards and synths on third album of Akuna Art.

"Poptronica Fantasy", an emotional pop-electronic fantasy built around 14 tracks. Release date : 04/28/2014
