CARDAMOMO – Latin music night
CARDAMOMO FRIDAY MAY 1ST 10PM
No plans for INTRO festival on Friday?
No problem, we got it covered.
Cardamomo is a World Music band with a big number of members. Now they are travelling China as a much smaller act playing Latin music only. Usually on stage they have 15 different instruments such as the Sitar, the djembe, something called “Udu” and even a cello. They also have belly dancers in beautiful clothing and smokemachines at their previous extravagant venues. We wont get the full blown version of all their musical magic, but we will get a glimpse of it. And we will definitively, for sure, be blown away.
My name is Sanna Kallioniemi and I work at 4 Corners. Currently I’m writing a post to promote your band and music, aiming at letting people know what kind of music CARDAMOMO plays. If it’s not too much trouble, please help me finish it. How many people are in the band? Could you send over some pictures? What does Cardamomo mean? Could you tell me a little about this tour? How long have you been playing together? What can the audience expect from this night? Thank you! Welcome to China : )
