Bio

Carlitos Orchestra is an 11 piece latin Band directed by Colombian composer Carlos Naranjo. Naranjo began his musical studies in his home town Bogota, Colombia where he did a three year university course in composition and music production and finished a Bachelors degree in music and sound engineering at the Australian Institute of Music in Sydney, Australia. His background and influences have taken this ensamble through different styles of music: salsa dura, cumbia, bambuco, bosanova, latin jazz, descarga... and more. "El Ciego", which is one of Naranjo's early Compositions, got to the final round at the International Song-writing Competition in 2006 in the Latin Category, out of 18000 entries from all over the world.
