Eriq Olin and Salomon Helperin are Zebra’s two founders and its launching ground. Two strong personalities with different musical background united through their curiosity and their infinite search for new ways of expression.

Eriq and Salomon are a perfect match thanks to their different backgrounds creating dramatic tension through Eriq’s drop tuned and heavily distorted guitars and Salomon’s breathtakingly beautiful trumpet lines. But this is just the starting point.Their musical journey could at any given moment change without warning where Eriq is transformed into something romantic almost, playing his open tuned guitars and basses, and Salomon breaks out from the Haydn-like politeness and turns into a deranged sonic machine, playing his HelperinDigitalTrumpet, duduk or the zourna.

In the studio, both musicians with their respective qualities, turns into a unique composition tool creating music with absolutely no limits, and Salomon’s background in symphonic music combined with Eriq’s deep knowledge in studio technology becomes the secret element behind The ZebraSound.

These two Zebras are two truly musical cameleons able to start from almost any position in the musical universe creating soundscapes with no boundaries; in composing for film, as a live act, as a duo or collaborating with other performers in the ZebraSyndicate close circle of friends.
