The association

Caranusca is the result of the meeting of three world music bands with Yann Caroff, the treasurer of the association.

Initially thought of as an administrative vehicle for the performances, it quickly became obvious that more could be achieved with Caranusca, starting with a catalogue to promote the three original bands to organizers.

Since its inception in 2009, the catalogue, initially made of Sligo, Djan’Gadjo and Bossa Quartel, has doubled, and the search of gigs and events is carried out as a team.

A few continents are represented here :

  • South America with Bossa Quartel
  • North America with Amazing Grass and their tunes of the 30's, and Kaïla with their warm Hawaiian mélodies with a touch of swing, also from the 30's
  • Western Europe with  Este Mundo's lively flamenco, Timbo Mehrstein Gyspy Jazz Ensemble's passionate Gypsy swing and Sligo's contemporary Irish music
  • Eastern Europe with the Fanfare Couche-Tard

The level of service provided by Caranusca is within professional standards (contracts, invoices, promotion, technical documents, short delays). We also make sure that the artistic level of our bands and the know-how of our technicians is at its best, through regular artist-in-residence sessions, rehearsals, training with external professional artistic consultants.

Welcome and thank you for your visit.
