Havana Palava is a street band that plays around Melbourne and regional Victoria at festivals and community events. Our music is a lively, eclectic mix of African, Caribbean, Gypsy, Klezmer and Blues.
We bring a great carnival vibe to the festivals we play at, sporting fabulous hot pink outfits, processing in anarchic formation, busting out choreographed numbers, luring a crowd, and generally making people get loosey goosey!
If you’re thinking of booking us, give us a shout – see our contact page.
