A Classical Road Trip with Delirium Musicum
New Episodes on Thursdays

Hit the road with us! MusiKaravan follows classical musician and Delirium Musicum founder Etienne Gara (Learn More) and fellow violinist YuEun Gemma Kim (Learn More) in their vintage 1971 VW van as they safely spread music and joy. Each short film highlights a place in California where Gara and Kim performed socially distanced concerts for farmworkers, winemakers, random passersby, and even the occasional ostrich. Music lovers and travel enthusiasts alike will love this irreverent journey! Look for new episodes every Thursday throughout the summer on The Soraya’s and MusiKaravan’s social media channels.

“MusiKaravan brings the energy of a concert hall into the intimacy of a special musical bonding experience. It creates a musical safe-zone that offers a humanness that is crucial in our society, sharing a true and liberating moment of life. This experience has proved itself to be a life-changing extension of my artistic values and will continue to shine brighter than ever as I join Thor and the dream team of The Soraya.”
—Etienne Gara
