“Qairo’s music knows no boundaries.” — CBC Radio Canada

Qairo is an exhilarating fusion of Flamenco, Turkish music, and Arabic and Balkan influences. The band’s original compositions, enhanced by electronic sounds, showcase Mediterranean traditions with a modern twist, and their movement explores the parallels between flamenco and classical Indian dance. We are transported on a modern Spice Road where powerful, heartfelt flamenco vocals are accompanied by oud or Turkish clarinet, and underlined by danceable beats. Qairo is a musical city without borders, where music and dance fuse and flourish.

Qairo emerged from a desire to blend various styles, creating music that is unique and representative of its members. The name Qairo refers not only to the iconic city of Cairo but also to ‘kairos,’ an ancient Greek concept meaning ‘the right moment, the opportunity to be seized.’

Qairo’s five multicultural artists embrace their unique musical expression, with travel being essential to their creative process. Deborah “La Caramelita” and singer Alejandro Mendía met in Sevilla, Spain in 2009. They joined forces with clarinettist and oud player Dorian Zavatta, who traveled by foot through Europe and the Middle East before settling in Turkey, and now France. Prominent in France’s world music scene, multi-instrumentalist Alex Carrasco enriches Qairo’s music with urban sounds, complemented by jazz-trained drummer Gaétan Diaz.

The ensemble, now based in Bordeaux, France, will release their first album in 2025.

Don’t miss what promises to be a magical night! Their last visit to the Hotel, in November 2022, was a passionate and joyous party of globe-trotting music and dance!
