Caribé brings the vibrant, passionate energy of Cuba to life.
Caribé's Havana Return crafts traditional and classic Cuban music forms into a contemporary setting to create a unique and mesmerising live performance.

The constant push and pull between powerful percussion and stunning melodies creates a dynamic tension that draws you in and invites you to dance in your seat. Caribés percussion and rhythm section set up a crackling, thunderous bed for Medina to dance with and the group to solo over. Their enthusiasm and raw spontaneity is impossible to resist.

Seeing Caribé is an immersive experience incorporating chants, stories, and percussive elements deeply rooted in rumba and Afro-Cuban spiritual practice, combined with archival footage of Cuban musicians. A melding of musicians and dancers from Sydney’s Cuban, jazz and Latin communities. The music and choreography integrates elements of traditional Cuban dance and music with a modern jazz aesthetic.

Nine-piece Caribé features Cuban dancer Adrian Medina and is led by renowned musician and composer Gai Bryant on soprano/alto saxophones and flute, along with percussionists Juan Carlos Allende and Steve Marin, Des Lee McIver – trumpet, Julian Gough - tenor sax, Des Cannings - bone, Josh Spolc - bass, and Daniel Pliner– piano.
