Dan Newton’s Café Accordion Orchestra is pleased to announce the release of their new album Berets and Bongos. CAO's eighth album is their most adventurous effort, featuring 14 tunes from 9 countries and vocals in 6 languages.
Berets and Bongos also reunites CAO with Finnish-American songbird Diane Jarvi, who graces 3 tracks with her stunning voice.
As the title suggests, there is plenty of that familiar French flair, plus Latin heat, Gypsy and swing rhythms, and of course great bongo playing!
