ZANZIBAR

ArTur Festival | August 10, 2018 22:00 | Festival Stage (Mezőtúr, Fekete István u., Under Water Tower)

Zanzibar is a Hungarian pop / rock band. On January 2, 1999, three other members of the Cegléd band – Artéria, Space Box and Fear of Silence – were formed (Gábor Sidlovics Gábor (Sidi), Gábor Nagy (Gabszi), Miklós Steklács (MikC) and András Kovács Donát (Doni)) then looking for a singer. On January 1, 1999, Rita Terecskei, who was then a police officer, confirmed the new-car driver Sidit, Gabszit, MikC and Donit. Rita let go of the boys, so (of course, even joking) they were welcomed to their singer. The next night, at a Ceglédi entertainment venue, Sidi and Gabszi saw Rita while singing with her sophomore girlfriends and a Janis Joplin song. At this point, the boys decided that Rita was really asked to be a singer of Zanzibar. He got a Kimnowak cassette that he had to learn two numbers for the next day. On January 2, today’s five members started playing the first songs in a Cegléd trial room.
