DESEO CARMIN plays a sultry fusion of Latin/Flamenco/Funk music -“Spanish music with an edge”. The band has been mostly performing in the Seattle area for the past 5 for years but their music has already transcended borders as far as Latin America where they currently receive radio play at radio stations in Paraguay and Chile. Throughout the years they have performed at several well-known venues and events such as World Rhythm and Folklife Festivals.

Their music has been featured in local radio stations as well as Seattle Channel and KCTS Channel 9’s “Arts Zone”.  They were selected as one of the featured performing artist in the Seattle.gov website and their music featured in “Seattle on Hold”. They are proud to have been nominated for a music award in 2011 at the New Music Seminar Artists on the Verge (AOV) project which takes place in Los Angeles, CA. “AOV” identifies the 100 artists most ready to break each year and it’s a great achievement for DESEO CARMIN to have been nominated to this exclusive list from millions of artists throughout the US.
