'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 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.
About our name: Karivaani is a combination of "caravan", "karavaan" (dutch/flemish) and "kari vana" (estonian for 'the long-standing tribe')
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'.
Karivaani was previously called ''Stompin' Caravan''
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.
