The group was first formed over a decade ago, and their heartfelt music has been enjoyed by audiences throughout Cornwall. They have also represented Cornwall at the Interceltic Lorient Festival in France.
Well known for playing a diverse range of folk, Caracana has become a sought after Ceilidh Band on the Cornish folk scene. Their music covers a wide range of genres and a variety of their songs are sung in Cornish as well as those that are performed in Sawsnek (English).
