Karawane (pronounced kara-va-neh) are Mark and Ali – global music DJs, producers, promotors and change-makers, focused on bringing people together through the bonds of rhythm and sound. Celebrating music without borders, they have been instrumental in bringing a new sound and attitude to the scene in the Scottish Highlands via their residencies, touring parties, radio shows, live streams, stage curation and festival performances.
After years of living and playing in South and Central America, Spain, Sweden and Germany, they have built a unique soundscape of global dance-floor culture. Roots world music from cumbia and salsa to afrobeat and tropical, and all the weird and wonderful bouncy, jazzy, brassy bits in the middle!
Since returning to Scotland in 2018, their uplifting sound has been a positive force for change and they continue to host fundraising events for charities such as Choose Love, the Highland Migrant & Refugee Advocacy and Highlands Supports Refugees. Karawane’s latest release on Samedia Trax is available now. Dancefloor business!
