ZAMAR was founded in the heart of Stellenbosch when energetic young musicians from across the country (and the world…), equally passionate about their music, came together to create a style which is both traditional and cosmopolitan.
Consisting of 5 highly talented and skilled male and female musicians, Zamar, which means ‘to celebrate with the plucking of strings,’ was meant to be a runaway success. This vibrant group is Veronica Bell (vocals & violin), Monika Stuchlik (accordion and other instruments), Heinie Jack( bass), Philip Vermeulen (guitar) and Ronald Siegelaar (drummer).
During their performance they take you on a tour around the world, visiting many different countries – you will experience everything from Gypsy to Jazz!
Their program includes: Popular Light Classical music, Hungarian Rhapsodies, Ukrainian Folk Melodies, South American Tangos, Irish Folk Music, Traditional African Songs, Contemporary Classics and much more. During their performance they take you on a tour around the world, visiting many different countries, and you will experience everything from Cape to Cairo!
