JOHN GILLIAT as CARUMBA
Carumba’s music incorporates a fusion of styles from Calypso, Brazilian Jazz, Spanish Rumbas and Nuevo Flamenco. Carumba infuses the fiery sound of Spanish guitar with the subtle and mellow sound of the Caribbean steel drum creating a unique new style that we like to call Contemporary Caribbean Fusion.
From gently flowing Bossa Novas to Fiery Rumbas and Caribbean favourites, Carumba’s repertoire is vibrant and entertaining, suitable for all occasions.
John and Rossi have performed and toured extensively in Japan, South Africa, Europe, and North America. We are based in Vancouver, Canada where we performs at some of the most popular venues and festivals, sharing our passion for music and showcasing our ability to infuse world music at its very best.
