Toques do Caramulo, Portugal


Toques do Caramulo, started in 2000, are from Agueda, in northern Portugal, by the Caramulo Mountains. Drawing on the region’s mountain folk music traditions, the group has developed a vast repertoire of musical themes based on re-inventions and re-creations, with their own arrangements based on original structure, including the addition of global music influences such as African music, jazz, flamenco, folk music from neighboring Galicia (Spain) in the north, klezmer melodies, Balkan sounds and electronics.
