"Loves Philosophy - CD review"

"Susanna's voice is beautiful and the band has a great sound."
- Will Lee of the David Letterman Band

"Liberation - CD review"

"Susanna Di Giuseppe’s voice is just lovely. So understated, it is well complimented by lead guitarist’s Esteban Figueroa’s seamless [playing]."
"The band’s sound is well-rounded:full and complete, they leave no creative stone unturned; They leave the listener very satisfied."
"I definitely had a couple of this-is-too-good-to-be-true moments while listening to Liberation, but they quickly dissipated as I continued to sit back, enjoy the sound,and dance!"
"They aren’t afraid to mix genres either. The band takes influences from jazz, rock, Latin, Salsa, and many others."
"Wonderfully interesting and never boring is the best way to describe the mixture, and it must be heard to be believed."
"Flamenco Caravan took me on a musical adventure unlike any I’d been on in a long time." - The Argus, by Stephanie Raycroft, Jan. 8 2013

"Flameno Caravan at Ottawa Jazz Festival 2007"

"The performance was absolutely fantastic; great playing and singing and wonderful audience response; what more is there to ask?" - Jaques Edmond, Programming Manager, Ottawa Jazz Festival

"Latin-Infused Concert Heats Up Chilly Night"

"The best musical experience of the evening was hearing Ms. DiGiuseppe sing [Flamenco Caravan's] own composition [Echoes], co-written by Tony Agostino and the great Esteban Figueroa. You can hear it on a Flamenco Caravan disc. But hearing it live, with the strong and exquisitely detailed accompaniment of...Tony Agostino made it the high mark of the evening."

"Susanna DiGiuseppe is a musical force of nature. She can be languid, frisky, petty, sultry, seductive, and sometimes she can do all of those things in the same song. Her subtle, quivering vibrato sent shivers through the audience - Chronicle Journal By: Michael Sobota February 10, 2012

"Flamenco Caravan - Soaring to Great Heights"

"With a full band and powerful instruments...their music was energetic and their skills were more than impressive."
"Esteban Figueroa's cool, laidback nature on stage took the audience away from the chilly [winter] setting...while he played his hot flamenco guitar licks."
"There were times when [Susanna] startled the audience with her incredible piano skills, on top of her powerful voice"
"The percussion players, led by Jim Differ, especially wowed me, performing effortless solos and keeping the audience moving to the music."
"From jazz to rock to Latin-inspired sounds, Liberation is a must-buy."

2007 Alchemy

Flamenco Caravan blends influences ranging from flamenco, jazz and rock to elements of Latin, sacred and folk music. The band’s sound is characterized by tight guitar flourishes and smooth vocals, with strong, melodic lyricism and driving and grooving rhythms throughout. The music has been described as "world-class", "beautiful and magical", "moving", "amazing in its variety" and "alternately soothing and stirring to the soul".

Formed in 1999, Flamenco Caravan is comprised of Esteban Figueroa on flamenco guitar, Susanna Di Giuseppe on keyboards and vocals, Tony Agostino on flamenco and acoustic 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, Pink Martini and America and their performances at the Owen Sound, Red Rock and Cambridge folk festivals have garnered rave reviews. The band’s reception at 2007’s Ottawa Jazz festival to an audience of 10,000 plus was equally enthusiastic.

Flamenco Caravan recorded Love’s Philosophy in 2005, and Alchemy, in 2007. Both CD’s were released to record audiences at the TBCA, prompting the GM of that venue, Bob Halverson, to comment, "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 a following on CBC radio at the local and national levels. The band receives consistent airplay and both Love’s Philosophy and Alchemy were named top 10 picks of 2006 and 2007, respectively, by CBC Radio’s foremost new music reviewer, Mark Rheaume. In addition,"Aires De Cuba", a song from Love’s Philosophy will be featured in a major 2013 motion picture called Look of Love, starring oscar-winning actors Robin Williams, Ed Harris and Annette Bening.
