Carl Cleves at Engadine house concert
7.30pm, Friday 28th August 2009

By Margaret Bradford
Posted Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Carl Cleve's nomadic past results in highly original songs which have won many awards in world & roots categories - most recently, MUSICOZ & Australian Songwriters Association - BEST FOLK SONG AWARDS. Carl's unmistakable guitar style was learnt from Brazilian players, bluesmen, Bert Jansch & Caetano Veloso, from the American banjo and the arabic oud. Traces of Brazil, Africa, folk and blues are the spice in the stew of Carl's songs which range from polyrhythmic exuberance to intimate subtlety, the personal to the political. Poetry and emotion. Carl performs with Parissa Bouas as the renowned duo, The Hottentots. His story songs are populated with refugees, the tears of broken hearts, the rage of obsession and the joys of solitude & travel.
