Usually my ear leans towards the gravely, grungy and dirty rock. But none of that applies to Amado LeeJaram Band. They’re a clean, pure type of soft rock that can have unexpected bursts of emotional energy. I find vocalist Lee Jaram both soothing and powerful, with soulful deep undertones. I would be excited to see them perform this year at Zandari. With the band boasting an extensive discography, I hope that means they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and I’ll get to see them perform one day.
We chatted a bit with Jaram herself about Zandari Festa.
We’d love to get an introduction to your band in your own words. Will you tell us who makes up your band, and how you describe your style of music?
We’re a four-piece band that consists of a drummer, bassist, and electric and acoustic guitarists. Our music is simple and easily made rock and we think one of the most important parts of our music is the lyrics.
What does being invited to play at Zandari Festa 2017 mean to you?
It means playing an enjoyable gig at a place where many talented musicians from all over the planet and music lovers are hanging out together.
What is the best part of Zandari Festa for you?
There’s such a great variety of music everywhere.
Who do you want to see play at Zandari Festa this year?
I want to watch SSing SSing and I’m curious about many of the overseas acts that will play.
What can people at Zandari Festa expect from your performance?
Poems that are sung.
