Since forming over a decade ago Karavana Flamenca has performed at major Festivals and events including the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Canberra National Folk Festival Cygnet Folk Festival and as acclaimed support for international giants the “Gipsy Kings” on their last Australian tour. Check out the review of their Palais performance here.
Karavana Flamenca plays rumba flamenco (gypsy rumba) with virtuosity and authenticity rarely seen outside of Spain. This flamenco palo fuses the rhythms of Afro-Cuba with traditional flamenco melodies. Duelling flamenco guitars, percussion drive the rhythm, Spanish/Romani vocals sing the haunting tunes. Rumba flamenca acts as a springboard for original songs where the outstanding musical talent and diverse cultural backgrounds (Spanish, Romany, South American, Turkish and Australian) of the band members are shown.
