Wild-eyed and exhilarating, the fourth annual Karavan! International Gypsy Music Festival brings the sounds of Eastern Europe to Australia this spring. Presented by MusikTrafik, the Istanbul/Melbourne network with a fine reputation as discerning purveyors of the global gypsy music scene, Karavan brings the best of the bohemian beats with this whirlwind five-date national tour.
Karavan! 2013 will be headlined by acclaimed world-leader’s of the Balkan sound, gypsy crack quintet THE NEW YORK GYPSY ALL STARS (USA), alongside national partystarters, the debauched feast of horns, string and drums that is THE WOO HOO REVUE, and DJiNN.
THE NEW YORK GYPSY ALL STARS (USA) jump the turnstiles of Balkanalia, Turkish roots and gypsy soul. Raised on the lush sounds of Macedonian, Greek, Turkish and American roots and honed in the halls of the world’s best music schools, the members of this fiery quintet united in the musical underground of New York’s Alphabet City. Pairing composer’s ears with a relish for genre-bending pan-Balkan sounds, The New York Gypsy All Stars send audiences into ecstatic good-time revelry.
Dust off your dancing shoes, Karavan’s coming to town!
