BIO

Formed
in 2011 by Venezuelan-Canadian brothers Javier and Victor Badillo,
CARACAS forges an unforgettable mix of Latin grooves, fiercely original
rock and a high-energy live show, reminiscent of bands like Pixies,
Gogol Bordello and Santana..with a Venezuelan twist.

Caracas has completed a tour of
the Mexican Mayan Riviera (2014) a tour of the Okanagan (2015), recorded
2 EPs and a demo, and has songs featured in TV shows, web series and
independent movies. The band has also shared the stage with Latin Grammy
nominated stars Jarabe de Palo (Spain), Gondwana (Chile) and La Gusana
Ciega (Mexico), among many others.

Releases and Appearance

Caracas's new EP "Bring on the Playtime"
(Spring 2016) was produced by South African-Canadian producer Dylan
Ellis (Hokum, Rami Lakkis), and was recorded in Vancouver's iconic The
Farm studios, and at DeVille Studios, tucked in a small East Vancouver
neighborhood.

A music video for their new single "Bring on the
Playtime" (2016) was shot by director Shaun Walford in Vancouver. You can watch the
award winning music video here.

The single "Bring on the Playtime" was also selected as the theme song for the new craft brewery web series "Vancouver On Tap" (2016).

A number of the band's songs are featured in the independent movies "The Cover-Up" (2013) and "Naked Night Bike" (2014).

Caracas
performed on Vancouver's Shaw TV Channel 4 for the "Canadian Sound Arts
Therapy Show", a community-driven program. The episode originally aired
in the spring of 2015 and is currently on rotation. In the summer of the same year, they were
invited to perform at the 27th Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival
2015, the largest of its kind in North America.
