There are multiple artists with the same name:
1: Carmina Burana is an independent rock band from Rosario, Argentina ( http://www.carminaburana.com.ar ). Their style is a fusion of ska, punk, metal, reggae and experimental music. The band started in 1994 when a group of friends decided to form a band that might (both musically and lyrically) revive the spirit of the similarly named Medieval-era Carmina Burana codex.
Carmina Burana have done plenty of live gigs and they have also recorded several albums.
2: A Spanish rock band active between 1983 and 1993.
3: Carmina Burana (or Burana Codex), is also a manuscript collection, now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich, of over 1000 poems and songs written in the early 13th century. Between 1935 and 1936 German composer Carl Orff set 24 of the poems to new music, also called Carmina Burana. The most famous movement is “O Fortuna” (Fortuna meaning Fate in Latin) based on the medieval poem of the same name. Please note that [artist)Carl Orff should be tagged as the artist when his scenic cantata “Carmina Burana” is scrobbled.
Through the decades after, several other musical interpretations of the poems were made by various composers. Still from time to time some artists release their own Carmina Burana-based tracks.
