Carolina Moon is one of the most exciting, innovative and gut-wrenchingly beautiful of Auckland's premier world music ensembles led by vocalist Carolina. Evocative song from medieval lands radiates an unmistakable pulse. Light travels, so does song… for almost 1000 years... Mingled with wild exotic grooves and contemporary, jazz tinged original world sounds at the beautiful edge of sanity. Carolina’s vocal weaves Eastern and Western blends into a passionate program of exquisite melodies, charismatic klezmer feels and flamenco grooves, amid songs drawn from the surrounding tide of musical inspiration.
