With feet planted firmly in the traditions of Afro-Brazilian music, Caravela’s heart is full of the soaring creativity and fervour that comes with improvised jazz. Weaving melodies around vibrant South American and West African-inspired rhythms, their music is sensitive and full of passion, energy and life. Like the vessels they take their name from, Caravela are setting out to explore territories unknown. Uncovering music that others have left behind or simply long-forgotten, they’re giving a new voice to beautiful songs that should not remain silent.
