Pocket Caravan (SOAS Concert Series) - 08/11/2016 Fri, 2016-12-23 22:26

Tracing routes & connections between Europe and South America

Pocket Caravan explore the fascinating rhythms of South America and the fiery melodies of European folk traditions, finding connections between music from across the continents. The Quartet began after a chance encounter between South Brazilian violinist Felipe Karam and British guitarist Peter Michaels, developing to include Bahian percussionist Anselmo Netto and North Brazilian double bassist Matheus Nova. From the barn dances of Northern Brazil to the gypsy circles of Spain via the Gaucho campfires of Uruguay, the ensemble combine live looping, improvisation and traditional techniques to celebrate the shared influences of music around the globe.
