La Caravane Passe

La Caravane Passe

 Paris, Île-de-France, FRA

The songs of La Caravane Passe are inspired by gypsy music and at the same time in indie rock. Their music, which bursts with energy and the desire to celebrate, integrates Balkan tangos as much as hip hop, and wanders from reggae to Italian tarantella.


We left La Caravane Passe in its imaginary village of Plechti (last album "Velkom
Plèchti"). Since then, it has celebrated dozens of ‘Vrai-Faux Mariages’ (‘Real-Pretend
Weddings’ - the name of the show) and has travelled the bumpy roads of good old
Europe, performing in concert on all different kinds of stages of the old continent.
For the 3rd album, LA CARAVANE PASSE has re-vamped its image, has electrified
and transformed itself into a machine to zigzag through time and space. Directed by
the weird and wonderful artistic fixer Camille Ballon (No One is Innocent, JAVA
etc.), la Caravane allowed some clandestine travellers on board: Rachid Taha,
R.Wan, Erika Serre, Marko Markovic, la Fanfare Ziveli.
A joyously colourful team for a new adventure in a mixed-up nowhere land; electric
guitars, bass and keyboards mix with gypsy guitars, brass and mandolins. You can
hear "chanson française", gypsy music, world-rap, balkan ska and electro-rock.
The same mix can be found in the lyrics, sung in a slang that mixes French and
English with Serbian, Spanish, Romani and German.
Truly a verbal pan-European melting pot telling stories of travels, of borders, of
cultures and of poeple.
What if our cyber-nomads are simply shaping the future Homo Europaneo?
La Caravane Passe always associates the sound with images in a visual universe
that takes its
inspiration from "SteamPunk" and from "Retro-futurism". To be (re)-discovered live,
where the band
piles on the periods in their costumes and produces a festively crazy and timeless
