Are you prepared to dance, reflect, and be mesmerized by a performer who challenges expectations and embraces the ever changing music industry? Zarbo, a multi-talented musician, artist, producer, and songwriter who has recently ignited the electronic dance music (EDM) industry, is the only name you need to know. Zarbo is demonstrating that age is just a number when it comes to producing addictive beats and thought-provoking melodies with a career spanning decades and a knack for exploring new genres.

As the founder member, leader, and bassist of the Canadian power-pop-rock trio Zarbo, Alexander Zarbo initially gained notoriety in the 1980s. Together with Greg Anzelc, an incredible drummer-singer, and Derek Sharp, who is currently the main vocalist for The Guess Who, Zarbo dominated the stage and amassed a devoted fan base. He had no idea that decades later, he would explore unexplored ground and try genres that had not yet been invented when they first began their musical journey.

In a brilliant move, Zarbo gave his 1985 eight-song LP, A-Z Collection, a fresh new sound by remixing and remastering it. He produced an unstoppable blend by fusing contemporary EDM and hip-hop elements into four original Zarbo tracks, which swiftly rose the charts. His remixes dominated the Canadian Electronic category on iTunes as well as the World Indie Music Charts (WIMC) and European Indie Music Charts (EIMC). Listeners yearned for more of Zarbo’s aural magic after seeing standout tunes like “Get Up and Dance (Electro Remix)” and “Correction in Direction (Electro Remix)” receive over 2 million Spotify streams.

That’s exactly what they received: more! The latest track from Zarbo’s upcoming album “Hindsight is 20/20 Two,” “They Lie,” has shot to the top of indie music charts. Zarbo bravely exposes the dishonest practices of a small Canadian town called Aurora Ontario by fusing his distinctive current pop music with important lyrics. Zarbo starts a discussion about trust, integrity, and the necessity for smart thinking in a world where self-granted authority is frequently in place by throwing light on the dishonest politicians that caused chaos in the neighborhood.

However, it’s not only about the music; it’s also about how Zarbo’s artistry affects his audience. He inspires listeners to challenge the current quo, question social standards, and critically consider the world they live in through his music and words. Zarbo’s music acts as a call to arms, encouraging us all to look for love, compassion, and a dash of intellectual disobedience.

We can’t help but be excited as we wait impatiently for the release of “Hindsight is 20/20 Two,” Zarbo’s upcoming album. A second 8-song LP by Zarbo is in the works, and it will include the already-released gem “Outta My Head,” which was inspired by a retreat in the Dominican Republic. This song shows Zarbo’s softer side and takes us on an emotional trip. It’s the ideal counterpoint to his upbeat beats, demonstrating that this musical outlaw is just as adept at moving our bodies as he is at touching our hearts.

Zarbo has ambitious plans for the upcoming year, which include a modest tour around Europe. And don’t worry, North America—he hasn’t forgotten about you! Zarbo hopes to amaze audiences all over the world, leaving a trail of dance-induced enlightenment in his wake. He will likely start in the United States and then make a triumphant return to his Canadian roots.
