DeLeon\'s unique style infuses the deeply mysterious and entrancing cadences of Sephardic Jewish folk music from 15th Century Spain to 20th Century Israel with modern indie rock.

DeLeon is the outlet through which front man Daniel Saks reconciles his lengthy cultural journey with modern influences.

DeLeon\'s modern musical influences include Animal Collective and Talking Heads. Saks, along with band mates Kevin Snider, Justin Riddle, Amy Crawford and Andrew Oom, pioneered an innovative style that marries ancient Sephardic melodies sung in Ladino, Hebrew and English with the chaotic symphony of urban living.

By re-imagining ancient melodies as contemporary pieces, DeLeon provides listeners with a unique chance to experience the rich musical history of Sephardic Judaism, traced back to the Iberian Peninsula—Spain, Portugal, Andorra and Gibraltar.

The band is named after and inspired by both 12th Century Kabalistic philosopher (and some say founder) Moses DeLeon and front man Daniel Saks\' great-grandfather Giorgio DeLeon. Their music, birthed in Spain before the Inquisition and raised in pre-WWII Italy, reached maturity in modern-day Brooklyn.
