Back in 1980’s Ihar Varaškievič, the band’s leader, was known as the vocalist of Бонда. After the band’s break-up he moved back to Baranavičy and lived there until 1991 when he was invited to join Rokis.
New material written by Varaškievič which included Што дапаможа нам, Камэндант, Бяжы, хлопец etc. was quite different from earlier Rokis’ music so it was decided to change the band’s name for Крама, the name that had been considered as a possible name for Бонда.
Three very successful albums followed. They included Хворы на Rock-n-Roll in 1993, Гэй там налівай! in 1994 and Камэндант in 1995. In 1994 Крама won the ‘Rock-karona’ award in Belarus and the ‘Поколение’ award in Russia and did a lot of touring in Poland.
Some problems followed and the disc Што дапаможа нам recorded in 1998 was much less of a success. In late 1990’s Ihar Varaškievič even considered quitting music sensing a lot of pressure as a result of too little changing in the band's style. This lasted until realization that there was enough to be said even withing the boundaries of classic rock. So Хавайся ў бульбу was recorded (2001).
A subsequent album was recorded in 2007 – Усё жыцьцё - дзіўны сон.
