Dolchamar is a Finnish rock band that performs in the language Esperanto. The band was formed in 1999 in London by Patrik Austin after his departure from Punaiset Messiaat, and were instantly signed on for the French Vinilkosmo record company and as of 2014 the band resides in Finland. In 2003, they changed their name from Dolcxamar to Dolchamar, a change between the two conventions for representing the Esperanto word dolĉamar’, pronounced [doltʃaˈmar] — poetic for dolĉamaro (literally "Sweet bitterness").

Former members[edit]

Ĉu vi pretas?[edit]

Ĉu vi pretas? is a hip hop song by the Esperanto band Dolchamar, on the album Lingvo Intermonda. The title comes from the chorus challenging, Ĉu vi pretas por la veno de Dolchamar? (Are you ready for the coming of Dolchamar?). The punchline Ĉu vi pretas? is an idiomatic way of asking one whether they are ready. It originally appeared briefly in a song by La Mondanoj, an 80's Esperanto hard rock band, and has now become a common catch phrase among Esperanto users.[1][2]
