'Stompin' Caravan' changed its name to 'Karivaani Orchestra'.
Karivaani is a combination of "caravan", "karavaan" (dutch/flemish) and "kari vana" (estonian for 'the long-standing tribe')
'it opens now and reveals the path where I am bound to walk upon. I forsee the way; see the twists and crazy turns that may adrift my weary mind from blindly holding on.'
(lyrics to 'Cocek Optimistic')
Karivaani Orkestra (previously called Stompin' Caravan) is a collective of musicians who share a great love for jazz and world music. By mending grooves and uplifting melodies based on traditions of both genres, their compositions create a summerly scenery.
Karivaani Orkestra released the first single (Dive) of their new album in april 2019.
'Dive' is about beïng confronted with a difficult situation, which makes you decide to go into a directions which is different than the one you initially wanted/hoped for. In other words, 'when you take a dive into cool water'.
In 2016 Stompin' Caravan released a first album, named
"The Garden". This cd is an ode to finding wonder in everyday things; on
the roads you take daily, in your own backyard.
