Voltaj was already founded in 1982 but many line up changes have kept the band alive and relatively young. Some band members were 7 (or even minus 3) years old when the band came to life.
The band has transformed from a protest band in the early years via heavy metal and easy electronic pop to the pop-rock band it is now.

Voltaj today are Oliver Sterian (drums), Valeriu Ionescu (bass), Gabriel Constantin (guitar), Adrian Cristescu (keyboards) and leadsinger Călin Goia.
Their most recent CD is Da Vina Pe Voltaj from 2012.
