Daklon explains the source of his nickname: "In those days everyone in the Kerem had a nickname. Your given name was only good for your ID. As a kid I was very small and thin, almost skinny (Hebrew: דק, dak; daq). Therefore they called me Daklon."
He started his musical career as an 11-year-old when his teacher sent him to do a spot for a religious music radio show.
Daklon was first inspired to take his music more seriously by Morocco-born singer Joe Amar at the end of the 1950s. Daklon took Greek and Indian songs and put Hebrew words to them in the 1960s when his career was launched.
