 Miami, Florida, USA
BandWorldNew Age

A unique fusion of rumba flamenca that incorporates sounds and rhythms from various corners of the world.

Biography

With strong roots in the Gypsy rhythms of flamenco and rumba of southern Spain origin, Capricho always makes sure to spice up its sound by incorporating elements from Cuban guajiras, Brazilian jazz, and even a touch of reggae in order to create a unique fusion of music. Their fast-paced, fiery strumming; exotic, passionate and catchy melodies, complimented by their rigorous technicality will be sure to captivate one and all.

Capricho was formed in early 2007 from a series of spontaneous musical interactions that evolved into a formal flamenco fusion group through myriad performances at various venues and events in the Boston area. They are currently in the process of finalizing their debut album and planning their first music video, which together will capture the essence of their style. Recently, the first single off their forthcoming album, "Rumba de Azahar", was announced finalist at the international 2010 100% Music Songwriting Contest, and 3rd prize winner at the 18th Annual Billboard Song Contest.

Lyrics

Vamos Que Vengo

Written By: Xavier Gonzalez, Serdar Karatekin

Vamos que vengo, vamos que vamos que vengo que vengo acelerado.
Vamos que vengo, vamos que vamos que vengo que vengo descontrolado.

La noche que yo te conocí yo no sabia que me iba a enamorar tan profundamente de tus ojos verdes bonitos y tu piel canela.
¿Por qué es que la gente solo aprecia lo que tiene cuando se les desaparece lo que ellos mas quieren?
Corre que corre que sigue, sigue persigue que como el agua que corre que como el aire que respiras. (x2)

¿Por qué es que la gente solo aprecia lo que tiene cuando se les desaparece lo que ellos mas quieren? (x2)
Y si te encuentro de nuevo en esta vida en otra vida, en Barcelona, Paris, Mozambique, Ticuantepe.

Vamos que vengo, vamos que vamos que vengo que vengo acelerado.
Vamos que vengo, vamos que vamos que vengo que vengo descontrolado.

La noche que yo te conocí yo no sabia que me iba a enamorar tan profundamente de tus ojos verdes bonitos y tu piel canela.
¿Por qué es que la gente solo aprecia lo que tiene cuando se les desaparece lo que ellos mas quieren? (x2)
