Since 2009, Caravãna Sun have built a reputation for fist pumping, personality filled live shows. Blending natural soulful lyrics with bouncing “gypsy ska” grooves, they’ve introduced even the most conservative crowds to the dance floor.
Based and inspired by the Cronulla coastline (Sydney, Australia), Caravãna Sun launched their debut album Rising Falling at Bondi’s infamous Beach Road Hotel in October 2011. The independent release featuring single ‘Feel Better’, established solid roots with their previously underground fan base and new fans began popping up like flash mobs over the East and West coasts of Australia on their subsequent tours. With a strong injection of gypsy culture bleeding through their already infectious sound, the creative collective returned to Europe in the winter of 2012 to visit the roots of inspiration behind their debut album, Rising Falling. The European tour stopped by touring venues and festivals in Switzerland, France, Holland and Spain taking in many lounge room floors and welcoming couches along the way.
Do not miss your chance to catch Caravana Sun’s next live show, stay tuned to the website and stop by the Caravãna Sun facebook page for a swag of summer dates over the West and East coasts and get set for a toe-tapping, high knee, body rocking performance from the unquestionably talented and insatiably spirited Caravãna Sun, featuring frontman Luke Carra, Ant Beard on bass, Alex Dumbrell on drums and Eamon Dilworth on trumpet.
