Djun is a Maltese language pop/alternative rock band formed in 2017 by Charles Cassar and Mark "Zizza" Abela, long time friends who had previously played together with funk band Zizza Ensemble and classic rock band Fire.
The Band debuted in November 2017 with an intimate gig at Valletta jazz club Offbeat. Mark Abela eventually amicably parted ways with the group in 2018 to focus on his primary project "Brodu", with Michael Vella Zarb joining the band as its new drummer in February 2018.
Djun turned their attention to recording their debut album "Il-Ħlas", a collection of songs linked thematically with shared concerns of loss, endings and the passage of time.
The album was recorded at Temple Studios and is planned for release in June 2019. The album's first single, the moody and mysterious "Il-Bir", was released in May 2019. Accompanying Vinyl cover art was designed by award winning illustration Julian Mallia.
