ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Flamenco Caravan, while being true to flamenco forms, also blends the band members’ favorite musical influences of Latin, jazz, rock, sacred and blues, capturing the imagination of the soul through guitar, rhythm and song. Between lightning-speed guitar flourishes, melting vocals, and the entire band’s driving and grooving rhythms and electric chemistry, audience members of every age have been won over. The music has been described as "world-class", "beautiful and magical", "moving", "amazing in its variety" and "alternately soothing and stirring to the soul". The comment most often offered to the band after a performance is, "I couldn’t sit still! I just wanted to get up and dance!"

Formed in 1999, Flamenco Caravan has evolved to include Esteban Figueroa on lead guitar, Susanna DiGiuseppe on keyboards and vocals, Tony Agostino on rhythm guitar, Jim Differ on drums and percussion, and Greg McIntosh on bass. Often additional musicians on percussion, backing vocals, trumpet and other instruments add to the band’s full sound.

The group has opened for acts such as Colin James, Jeff Healey, Paul Shaffer and America, and their performances at the 2006 Owen Sound, Red Rock and Cambridge folk festivals garnered rave reviews and standing ovations.

In 2005, Flamenco Caravan recorded "Love’s Philosophy" and launched the CD on October 7th at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium to an 800+ audience. General Manager of the auditorium, Bob Halverson, commented: "That, in my mind, was one of the finest shows I’ve ever seen in that building. You expect someone on the international stage to be good, but when you find someone in Thunder Bay who is as good or better, that ices it for you."

Flamenco Caravan has been interviewed by CBC radio at the local and national levels. Both Love's Philosophy and Flamenco Caravan's second CD, Alchemy, have been successfully auditioned by national CBC Radio and distributed to its stations nationwide. In addition, "Love’s Philosophy" was named a top 13 CD pick of 2006 by CBC Radio Music Resources out of an estimated 800 other CD's submitted in 2006.

On April 28, 2007, Flamenco Caravan launched Alchemy at a concert attended by over 1100 enthusiastic people at the Thunder Bay Community Auditorium. The band looks forward to promoting its new CD in the upcoming months and performing at the 2007 Ottawa Jazz Festival on June 27.

Susanna's voice is gorgeous!
I'm a guy who prefers synth-pop/electronica but even I know musical gold when I hear "Echoes". On this album, some tracks will put you in a relaxed happy place and most will make you want to dance. Alchemy is accessible and beautiful and makes me want more of the same!

Alchemy
After hearing Flamenco Caravan's music during the CBC interview I bought Love's Philosophy. I didn't think it could be topped. Alchemy has surpassed the earlier excellence & has become my wife's favourite. My advice - don't stop now. I'm already looking forward to their next CD.

Another set of a great new sound from a surprising source
Flamenco Caravan has gentle background sound, rich instrumental range and light soaring vocals. This has to go to the top of the easy listening heap as well as dinner music, and for romantic evenings (!) And if you like "Alchemy" (as you will!) then be sure that you have their first CD as well - Love's Philosophy. These are not more of the same; the style and genre are the same, but the music is new and more. You really want to have both!
