Karikatura is a New York based roots pop band, making life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. The band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, across the United States and Europe. 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 merengue. Neither purist nor revivalist, this is music of the present, for the future. They are currently recording their next full-length album. Karikatura was also accepted into the 2016-2017 American Music Abroad “American Voices” program. They will be assigned to international tours by the US State Department in 2017.
