Zorita are a raucous rousing rabble. The band’s bohemian music boasts an eclectic mixture of instruments like the accordion, trumpet and violin. In combination with bass, drums and guitars, as well as frontman Carlos Zorita Diaz’ raw voice, this creates a completely unique sound. Boldly blending influences from South America, the Mediterranean, Balkan and Folk music, an evening with Zorita is guaranteed to breathe life into any party. In their own words, the eight musicians of Zorita describe their well-oiled ragtag collection of instruments, styles and personalities as ‘Musica Vagabunda’.
In December 2017 Zorita launched a new album 'Aphrodite' with a show in a fully packed Paradiso. They continue exploring new styles, adding pop, psychedelica and rum-soaked voodoo to the mix.
Founded in Amsterdam in 2009, Zorita impressed judges and audiences in the finals of competitions like ‘De Grote Prijs van Nederland’ and the ‘Amsterdamse Popprijs’. In the Popronde, Zorita wowed audiences nationwide.
The past years saw these seasoned musicians play dozens of festivals like Zwarte Cross (NL), Fiesta Mundial (BE), Copacobana (BE), Oerol (NL), Lowlands (NL) and Boomtown Fair (GB).
