"Sirius.B is trova italiana, war song, gypsy, middle eastern, quasi-Klezmer-seculare, with strong Irish-drinking overtones and Zappa madness."

Sirius.B brings to you the finest Absurdist Gypsy Folk Funk Punk that the world has to offer. Their "impressively irreverent, combustible, three-ring circus of sound [and] high-energy style is difficult to neatly categorize. They play foreign music as well as upbeat and serious originals, with a lyrical style ranging from the quirky to the absurd."
"Sirius.B. carries the brewing excitement of something big in the making."
-Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress

Karikatura makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. While the band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, New York City is home. With bright horns, socially conscious lyrics and booty-bouncing beats, Karikatura delivers real songs that transcend style and genre. An organic synthesis of all the music heard blasting out of car windows and shops onto the streets of NYC, Karikatura lives where cumbia meets hip-hop, reggae meets klezmer and indie-rock meets afrobeat. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future. The band will release its debut full-length album, Eyes Wide this May, following up two EPs and DIY tours of Europe, Asia and South America.
