A joyously colourful adventure in a mixed-up nowhere land; electric guitars, bass and keyboards mix with gypsy guitars, brass and mandolins. You can hear “chanson française”, gypsy music, world-rap, balkan ska and electro-rock.
Listen to it from the new CD:
Travelling Party: 7 (5 musicians, 1 tour manager, 1 sound technician)
Gypsy For One Day
We left La Caravane Passe in its imaginary village of Plechti (last album “Velkom Plèchti”). Since then, it has celebrated dozens of ‘Vrai-Faux Mariages’ (‘Real-Pretend Weddings’ – the name of the show) and has travelled the bumpy roads of good old Europe, performing in concert on all different kinds of stages of the old continent.
For the 3rd album, LA CARAVANE PASSE has re-vamped its image, has electrified and transformed itself into a machine to zigzag through time and space. Directed by the weird and wonderful artistic fixer Camille Ballon (No One is Innocent, JAVA etc.), la Caravane allowed some clandestine travellers on board: Rachid Taha, R.Wan, Erika Serre, Marko Markovic, la Fanfare Ziveli.
The same mix can be found in the lyrics, sung in a slang that mixes French and English with Serbian, Spanish, Romani and German.
Truly a verbal pan-European melting pot telling stories of travels, of borders, of cultures and of poeple. What if our cyber-nomads are simply shaping the future Homo Europaneo?
La Caravane Passe always associates the sound with images in a visual universe that takes its inspiration from “SteamPunk” and from “Retro-futurism”. To be (re)-discovered live, where the band piles on the periods in their costumes and produces a festively crazy and timeless show

Anchor man and eye candy.
vocals, trombone, cornett, keyboards
Changing the horn whilst playing the keyboard, makes the Andalusian sky wheep by singing Flamenco.

Converts air into bricks.
Presses everybody rhythmically forward and brings us all close to the muscles in our dancing legs
The foundation. The ground. The dance.
