Zar Monta Cola

A european, artist, primarily known for his outrageous & unpredictable stage antics, exotic (acutely political!) dances & visual poetics, as a bass player, in a band called Jumbo Jet, is now doing some stuff for this project, too.
In 2009, Zar deconstructed himself, but came out of the abyss shortly after, to co-found the
sci-fi-delia band WARM GRAVES, as the icon behind the technoid tribal-rhythms. He toured & recorded both within the international & the United States, in over 40 underground bands, until shortly before this mess caught him dreaming of a better world. Though his popularity has fluctuated through the years, he continued acting - in a variety of stupid jobs in construction, bars & tv-shows. His work is characterized by nonconformity, free-form improvisation, experiments, virtuosity & satire - but mainly full of high energy & serious fun. A career marked by reinvention, with his music & stagecraft having a significant impact on a lot of funny people & outer worldly creatures. During his lifetime, his record sales, estimated at over 1.500 records worldwide, made him one of the world´s music artists…
Zar lives a colorful personal life, & is often involved in turbulent situations which became his trademark. He is one of many, many people to have no stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but still stayed on the flying carpet of reality.
