Kara, a quartet from Hertfordshire, play spirited acoustic folk with a Russian twist. Their name is Turkish for 'black' and Russian for 'punishment'.
The quirky band capture the imagination with a strong focus on theatrical performance. They are comprised of Daria Kulesh (vocals, bodhran) Ben Simon (guitar) Gary Holbrook (accordion) and Kate Rouse (vocals and hammered dulcimer). You can expect catchy songs, lively tunes, subtle humour and perhaps even a dance or two.
Kara tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Jan 2014.
