Carolina Moon Biography

“A universe of cultural richness as deep as the time that it engendered." - Les Nouvelles Caledoniennes

“Utterly beguiling” - John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald.

The powerful melodies of Sepharad or Sephardic Spain lie at the heart of Carolina Moon’s repertoire. Borne by mothers, lovers, sisters and daughters of the Diaspora for almost 1000 years, these songs of life, love, loss and joy resonate with a vibrant spirit of tradition and community. The sybilline Ms Moon unfolds ancient scripts and original songs amid creative, evocative soundscapes ~ gutteral wisps of electric oud, guitar loops, crazy rhythms and pure wildness.

The ensemble assembles the cream of boundary-stretching NZ improvising artists who came from around the world to meet on the shores of Aotearoa. Their interpretations remain true to the spirit of this beautiful music and bring it into the present day. Their recent CD ‘Mother Tongue’ features key artist Nigel Gavin (Crafty League of Gentlemen/Jews Bros) and JJA Awards winner Roger Manins. They are gaining awesome reviews wherever they play.

Carolina Moon is a multi-lingual, improvising vocalist with a passion for medieval and traditional world musics. UK born, she spent her formative years on the London jazz and world music scene, moving to Sydney in 1995. Here she performed and collaborated with many leading artists including Mark Isaacs with whom she first performed the Sephardic repertoire. In 2002, she travelled to the Jazz India Vocal Institute, Mumbai studying voice and raga. Her debut album 'The Shaman's Kiss' was nominated for a 'Bell' in the Australian Jazz Awards 2003. Now based in New Zealand, Caro completed her Masters of Music in Performance in 2009. The ensuing CD 'Mother Tongue' was released in 2011 to critical acclaim. Her performance experience spans the UK, Australia, India, China, Aotearoa and the Pacific.
