Jaipur, Rajasthan, January 18, 2017 /India PRwire/ -- As a part of the weekend theatre and cultural activities at Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK), a folk, fusion and world musical performance by the Indo Balkan Music Band 'Zamee' will be held tomorrow.

The event is organised by SEHER in association with Hindustan Zinc and Wonder Cement as a prelude to Udaipur World Music Festival (UWMF), 2017 and is supported by Rajasthan Tourism.

Comprising of 9 members, Zamee is a Folk- Fusion band based out of Slovenia and India. It taps into the intriguing similarities between Balkan and Indian music, combining Sufi poetry, rustic folk songs and sacred Indian invocations, with heart wrenching Macedonian melodies and Gypsy tunes.

The members of the band include Nika Solce (Vocals and Acoustic Guitar), Sahiba Khan (Vocals), Matija Solce (Accordian and Vocals), Vinayak Netke (Tabla and Percussions), Tilen Stepisnik (Guitars), Toby Kuhn (Cello) and Ziga Sercer (Percussions).

Says Festival Director Sanjeev Bhargava: "The Pink city, with its music connoisseurs will be introduced to the contemporary Indo -Balkan music with roots in south east European melodies and the traditional tunes of Indian songs. ZAMEE is all set to hypnotise the crowd with their unique music realm. A window into the world of UWMF 2017, the Prelude is a glimpse into the high energy and hypnotising performance for the music lovers, a kaleidoscope into the heart rendering, trance like world that UWMF weaves."

The event will take place at 6.30 pm at JKK's Rangayan Auditorium.
