“Karikatura makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world.” And this is very much true. A fusion cocktail of cumbia, hip-hop, reggae, klezmer, indie-rock and Afro beats, Karikatura represents the future in music. The band’s conception came from Brooklyn-bred recovering metal guitarist, Dima Kay. He joined forces with like-minded musicians: soulful singer Ryan Acquaotta, bassist Eric Legaspi, brass maestro Dan Lehner, and drummer Morgan Greenstreet. They move people with Rebelde songs and creative horns, representing a pan-cultural New York with its diverse world of sounds, cultures, thoughts, places and universes, merged into one space.
Recently, I sat down and talked with these gifted musicians, who will be releasing their EP Speak Now on Ropeadope Records on April 15th. Speak Now, features four songs that address the ghosts in our society: racism, guns, war and identity.
