The Zacas is an acoustic folk duo originating from South Africa’s capital Pretoria, consisting of brothers Luigi on vocals with Salva Zaca on guitar.
Their new E.P entitled “I me” was recorded at Undahouse Studios in South Africa and features the acoustic single “Bored With Me”. These recordings harness the melodic and instrumental beauty of an acoustic arrangement and suit the personal nature of the songs.
The Zacas describe their music as “…going back to the roots of acoustic music, representing who we are, our identity and our passion for a raw acoustic singer-songwriter style music”.
Salva studied classical music at Pro Arte Alphen Park and became a renowned classical guitarist in South Africa. His influences include Miles Davis who he grew to love while studying Jazz at Tshwane University of Technology.
Luigi studied Architecture and design and was trained for Opera before discovering a passion for jazz and rock through his biggest influence, Myles Kennedy.
The Zaca brothers have played a lot of shows in South Africa including the well-known Barnyard Theater but have since moved to Indianapolis in America where they are currently based.
