Scottish-Canadian poet, Sandra Alland, and Belgian-Venezuelan musician, Y. Josephine, formed Zorras in 2007. They quickly became known for their unique bilingual mixture of text, sound poetry, percussion, singing, guitar, electric bass, megaphones and projected images.
Zorras inject passion and humour into personal experiences and cutting observations of our troubling times. The result is strangely alluring musical stories.
Zorras are dedicated to collaboration and experimentation, and have worked with many artists and collectives, including: Ariadna Battich, Nathan Gale, Gord Disley, Ania Urbanowska, b)other Collective, Iván Martín, Andy Duncan, thiscollective (for which they adapted a Brian McCabe poem), Screen Bandita and LAL.
In July 2009, Zorras released the CD, We Apologise For Any Inconvenience (Minor Assault Records). The CD has received excellent reviews throughout the UK and North America. In April 2012, they released an EP, Doctor Says (Minor Assault Records).
Zorras have toured widely in the Scotland, the rest of the UK, and Canada. They have also recently returned from playing in Berlin, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Amsterdam.
