Joost Abbel is a cultural sociologist, graphic designer and musician. He plays guitar and banjo in the band Zorita, which he also manages. In 2013 he co­-founded the Amsterdam Artist Collective, the world’s first DIY agency.

Zorita are a raucous rousing rabble. The band’s bohemian music boasts an eclectic mix of instruments like the accordion, trumpet and violin. In combination with bass, drums and guitars, as well as frontman Carlos Zorita Diaz’ raw voice, this creates a completely unique sound. Blending influences from South America, the Mediterranean and Folk music, an evening with Zorita is guaranteed to breathe life into any party. In their own words, the 8 musicians of Zorita describe their well-oiled ragtag collection of instruments, styles and personalities as ‘Musica Vagabunda'.
