BIOGRAPHY

Karmadillo are a Cambridge/London based project with a unique brand of quirky acoustic pop folk-rock. The music of Karmadillo is based on the sound of a traditional yet fun South American instrument mixed with British pop and rock melodies. There is plenty of room for melancholy and sad sounds as well - the charango can be used to produce beautiful, haunting notes. Think Leonard Cohen after he's had some prozac. They like to use the RPM Challenge to stir some songwriting and recording relevant to whats going on with. In 2008 (once the RPM challenge is out the way) the plan is to record an album of death and money related songs. karmadillo.org has more information.
