About the Band

25cf258325ce25ac25cf258125cf258925cf258325ce25b700071We are an acoustic, old-world folk ensemble.

Caprice Rouge explores the winding scales and exotic melodies of music, essentially, although not limited to the areas of Eastern Europe from Russian south into Greece, among them Bulgaria, Moldova, Hungary, Macedonia, Albania and Turkey. Drawing on styles from Romany musicians, Klezmers, and other folk music traditions, Caprice Rouge brings their own interpretations to these age-old tunes.

We can be small and quiet or BIG and LOUD!
Caprice Rouge has played gallery openings and theatrical productions; weddings, synagogue events and private parties; celebrations and festivals; big halls and small spaces, indoors and out! The band is agile and flexible. Check out some of spots where we’ve been booked.
