The third Karavan is on the way, bringing with it some of the greatest gypsy music from Australia and the world. Headlining the show will be Istanbul’s Baro Banda. Truly a global band, physically spanning the globe from Australia to Turkey, their music is an emotional BAROmeter of the city in which the band was born, extreme in every direction and committed to the now. Founded in Istanbul in 2006 Baro Banda created a sound truly representing the bridging of East and West.. From heavy Turkish romany grooves to drum ‘n’ bass, dub, funk, jazz, hip hop and other influences, Baro Banda specialise in the unexpected. Vocalist/guitarist Murat Yucel (Australia/Turkey), gypsy clarinet master Savas Zurnaci (Turkey) and saxophonist Alisha Brooks (Australia) are joined by their rhythm section and various electronic devices to create a new dimension in world roots music.
