Karikatura is a band based in New York City pumping out lively, body-shaking music that blends gypsy, latin, hip-hop, indie rock, afrobeat, and reggae styles into one huge, organic sonic party. Based on strong rhythms and topped with socially conscious-lyrics, bright horns, and an abundance of joy, the band, which was born on the road — conceived in South India and ultimately realized in NYC — can sound at home anywhere in the world.

Featured song: “Some Kind Of”
