Revolutions can take your whole life. But when the energetic songs of Latin punk band CARACAS stand up to oppressive governments, remember friends and families left behind, and echo the pleas of the displaced, they do so wholeheartedly, pouring blood, love and lyrics on the world stage, and inviting you to participate. Because we know you are listening, and we know you too, want change.

Inspired by their birthplace of Caracas, Venezuela, and by previous bands they had played in over the years, Javier and Victor Badillo started Caracas the Band in 2011. Since then, they have shared the stage with a multitude of talented bands and musicians, including Latin Grammy nominated artists Jarabe de Palo (Spain), La Gusana Ciega (Mexico), and Gondwana (Chile). Caracas has also toured Western Canada and the Mexican Caribbean.
In 2018, drummer Andrew Godwin and bassist Ashish Joseph joined the Badillos.
