The Caravan Project’s latest CD
The Walk To Nowhere
“Inspired by the spirit of the tribe”
Raw, earthy, tribal, simple—the pounding of the drums, the shaking of the different percussion instruments with the underlying beat, the wailing of the zurna or the sinuous melodies of the nay. It takes us back to basic idea of tribe, of dancing together around the campfire at night, like the heartbeat. Basic. That is all. We dance and play together. And the band is inspired by the dancers and the dancers inspire the band. Ancient feelings, contemporary times.
Be transported by the haunting melody and grounded by the booming beat!

From Irina in Russia!
Music from the last album is wonderful. I love to train and dance to this music. My favorite tracks for the dance is “Driving Spirits” and “Mendocino”.
“Walk To Nowhere” I like just to listen to and I see images of nature: rivers, forests, lakes, sunrise and sunset, the warm wind in your face … The track is ideal for relaxation and meditation.
Thank you for your wonderful music.
