Caravãna Sun is a frenetic fusion of gypsy fuelled ska surf rock.
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. The boys wound up 2011 with a heavy tour schedule making the Beach Hotel - Byron Bay, Sol Bar – Maroochydore and Settlers Tavern – Margaret River their locals.
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.
After breaking for some creativity escapes at the end of the European tour, Caravãna Sun will be reacquainting themselves with the Pacific Highway to round up a successful 2012. Hitting the road with a fresh summer sound and a new single under their belt you can catch them on the bill at Harrington’s Breakwall Festival, the Wingham Akoostik Festival and Sydney Blues and Roots in October.
