Caramelo to Play DROM, 6/2; Le Poisson Rouge, 7/11
Caramelo is set to perform two June/July shows in NYC.
The first celebrates their release party on June 2, 2012 at DROM, 85 Avenue A between 5th & 6th. Tickets are $10 adv./$15 door. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show starts at 7:30 pm. Call 212.777.1157 for more information.
Caramelo revels in a New-World sound and vision for old-school duende, the spirit of expression and energy that drives flamenco at its best. This streets-meets-Sevilla soul will fill Drom on June 2, 2012, as the band celebrates Ride, thanks to special guests from Antibalas, Chicha Libre, and Gregorio Uribe Big Band —and to the band’s funky corps of lithe, vibrant dancers.
The second will take place July 11 at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleeker Street. Tickets are $10 adv./$15 door. Doors open at 6:30 pm. The show starts at 7:30 pm. For more information, call 212.505.FISH
Caramelo is a crew of musicians and flamenco dancers with a shared love of soulful R&B, alt rock, and hot Latin grooves. On their debut Ride (May 29), Sara Erde’s sensuous bilingual purr and the gorgeous, gritty voice of flamenco singer Alfonso Cid (“La Luna”) grace the band’s urbane hooks, unexpected instruments, and ear-candy songwriting. 05/29/12 >> go there
