Devon Demos - Guitar

Who's who?
Mark, Celeste and Arthur make up Zambra Mora.

Mark has played in numerous bands in a variety of locations worldwide. He's been playing guitar since he was 15 but has only recently turned his hand to playing Flamenco, taking lessons in 2001 with leading UK virtuoso Jon Salfield.

Arthur from Zambra Mora
Arthur beating out the rhythm

Arthur has played percussion since he was 11, with encouragement from his father who had been a Drum Major in the Coldstream Guards. He lives in Cornwall where he met Mark and is now turning into those African rhythms.

Celeste is our Devon lass, although you wouldn't guess it from her name. It's derived from her mother who was born in Madeira. Celeste has received classical training for both vocals and the guitar and lives in Crediton, where she likes to cycle - especially to the pub!

What does Zambra Mora mean?

Gypsy (Moorish) Party - it was chosen by Mark.

It's quite different to other Devon Demos we've had. Can you describe it in three words?
Afro- Flamenco Fun!

What's the story behind the track you've decided to let us hear, "Waggledance"?
Waggledance was written by Mark for our busking trip in France. It was named after an exceptional beer we drank at The Double Locks in Exeter!

What do you think about the current music scene?
We're too old to care! We grumble at the youths who watch Top Of The Pops.

What's been your most memorable gig?

Busking at Benodet. We earned six euros and were moved on by the Gendarmes!

If you could each invite a guest to dinner, who would it be?
Arthur - Robert Stigwood (Band Promoter!)
Mark - Kylie (do I need to explain?)
Celeste - John Grimshaw (Sustrans)

Complete the sentence, "If we become famous...."
We'll give up the day jobs. Except Arthur of course, he's retired already!

What are the highs and lows of living in Devon?
Highs: Country pubs
Lows: Half day closing.

The future?
We hope to perform at festivals in the UK amd Europe, art centres and any parties that sound good!
