Kara Nomadica is a Middle-Eastern fusion band with a sound inspired by traditional Arabic and Turkish rhythms and maqamat (scales) as well as modern industrial/techno music. Its members have well over a century of combined musical experience.
The members of Kara Nomadica play a vast array of traditional instruments, including oud, saz, darabuka, doumbek, riq, frame drum, dholla, davul, ney, and mizmar, and didjeridoo…all solidly anchored in the 21st century by the fretless bass guitar. These ancient, and not-so-ancient, instruments blend to give the band’s original compositions a truly unique synergy, while breathing fresh life into their large repertoire of traditional songs from Turkey and the Arab world.
Kara Nomadica’s goal is to bring its exotic Middle-Eastern fusion sound to a broad spectrum of music lovers, while specifically focusing on supporting the grace and beauty of the international bellydance community. To this end, Kara Nomadica has recently been inspiring thousands of dancers and listeners at numerous bellydance shows, haflas, arts festivals, World Music and Dance showcases, and charity benefits throughout Northern Colorado, garnering rave reviews.
