Zoobazar


Zoobazar was one of the finest World Music bands from Spain. Their music is highly creative, innovative and fresh and embraces a global vision. They are known for their great musicality, originality, maturity and ability of blending various Mediterranean traditional music styles like Iberian, Balkan, Greek, Turkish, Oriental, Middle Eastern, North African and even Indian folklore with western elements such as funk, rock or jazz. The band defined their style as Mediterranean World Music Fusion. The band members have been part of the most prestigious Spanish world music artists such as
Radio Tarifa, La Musgaña, Eliseo Parra, Javier Paxariño, Mastretta, etc.

Zoobazar were Amir John Haddad (Arabic oud, turkish saz, greek bouzouki), Diego Galaz (violin, strohviol, saw, mandolin), Héctor Tellini (bass) and Pablo Martin Jones (percussions, drums). Since their first debut with “UNO” the band has toured nonstop on national and international territory performing at different festivals in Costa Rica, Serbia, Malta, Italy, Portugal, Azores Islands, Russia, etc. scoring each time a larger number of followers and fans.

Zoobazar has been highly acclaimed by the national and international press:
“Zoobazar has a great musicianship and delivers an exquisite blend of fusion”
(Jose Miguel Lopez, Discopolis RNE3),
“Zoobazar is an example of world music at its finest. An impressive debut.”
(Angel Romero, World Music Central USA).

Their show was recommended by Theatre Network REDESCENA 2011.
Zoobazar has been nominated at the IMAs Independent Music Awards USA in 2012 in the category for best World Beat Album with “UNO” and in best Song World Traditional with their Balkan song “Fun Faria”.

Zoobazar has released their second album “DOS” in April 2014 which counts with the following outstanding and international featuring artists: Carmen Paris (Spain), Jorge Pardo (Spain), Kroke (Poland), Hamsika Iyer (India), Rimon Haddad (Palestine), Shankar Mahadevan (India) y Kaushal S. Inamdar (India). Both Zoobazar albums have been produced by Carlos Raya, mastered by
Richard Dodd (Nashville) and distributed by GALILEO.

They have been selected to tour internationally with AECID (Spanish Agency for Cooperation & Developement) in 2013 and in June 2014 Zoobazar has represented Spain at 35º EBU Euroradio Folk Festival in Rättvik, Sweden. In 2014 they also reached the 55th position in the list WORLD MUSIC CHARTS EUROPE (top 250 of 824 records) and a great success with their showcase-concert at WOMEX 2014.

In 2017 the band made the decision to stop their project and activities for an uncertain amount of time. A break to re-evaluate their status quo and find a new way for the future.
