Zolla because it all started with a conversation about Astor Piazzolla

Zolla because is sounds a bit like Zorro, dashing, mysterious, daring,  with that awesome three lined gesture…Ya! Ya! Ya!
Zolla because is sounds a bit like a nice friendly greeting, “Ola!”
And reminds you of the flamboyant “Olé!”

Zolla because with that “Z” at the beginning you can lift your upper lip and bare your teeth like a tiger

Zolla because there are 2 “L’s” and there are two of us.

Zolla because is has that element of surprise with the first vowel “Oh!”

Zolla because it may lead you to understanding with the last vowel “Ah!”

Zolla was created with the support of Series 8:08 Creators Space Program and with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council
