Caravan includes Esther Adams, Renee Bergan, Lia Karpukh,
Linda Snook, Kerry Walsh, and Megan Yalkut.

ESTHER ADAMS brings to Caravan a background of Middle Eastern,
American folk and bluegrass styles. A singer and instrumentalist, Esther
studies ethnomusicology, Islam and Arabic language at UCSB, and
performs occasionally with the UCSB Middle East Ensemble. From 1998
to 1999, she studied the oud (Arabic lute) in Cairo, Egypt, where she
was the only non-Arab member of a performing Arabic choral ensemble.
In addition to her recent endeavors in Middle Eastern music, Esther has
been a guitar player since the 1980's, and has performed and recorded
with several groups in the San Francisco Bay Area, their styles ranging
from punk to bluegrass. She is now happily married, the proud mother of
a four-month-old son, Omar.

RENEE BERGAN is a filmmaker, dancer, musician and photographer.
She has been studying Middle Eastern dance and flamenco for the past
nine years. Her studies in dance and music have taken her both to Spain
and Egypt for extensive periods. In addition to Caravan (a group which
she loves and feels has really enhanced her musicianship) she is a member
of theUCSB Middle East Ensemble. Renee's work as a filmmaker is her
politicalactivism. By focusing on documentaries, she hopes to enlighten
minds and bring greater understanding to all people in the world.

Once upon a time, at a flea market in Berkeley, California, LIA KARPAKH
passed by a violin several times before succumbing to the urge to take it
home. Since that fateful day she has studied a variety of styles including
Klezmer and Middle Eastern music. Her interest in music and performance
has been influenced by a history with Contact Improv dance. When not
performing with Caravan, Lia is both a teacher of young children and a
student of International Studies in Santa Barbara, California. Actively
engaged in exploring issues of social and political importance, Lia is
also a founding member of a guerilla theater group known as the
Soapbox Collective.

LINDA SNOOK is an artist, photographer and musician who has performed
in a variety of musical ensembles, including madrigals, classical chorales,
woodwind quartets and multi-media art performance pieces in the US,
Korea and Japan. She is currently studying ethnic music with an emphasis
on Middle Eastern Music, Northern Indian Classical music, and African
percussion. A member of the UCSB Middle East Ensemble, Linda believes
that the powerful universal languages of music, rhythm and dance can help
to promote international peace both by enhancing individual spiritual
and by effectively increasing the levels of tolerance and understanding
differing cultures.

KERRY WALSH has performed in a number of different mediums, both as a
flautist and singer. While a student at the North Carolina School of the
Arts in New York she toured Europe as soloist with the international music
program orchestra and has since played as an orchestral solo recital and
chamber musician. She received her Masters in flute from Juilliard.

Beginning her vocal performance as a jazz and early music singer, she now
focuses primarily on opera and contemporary music. She has sung with opera
companies and festivals which include Opera San Jose, Santa Fe Opera, San
Luis Obispo Mozart Festival, Santa Barbara Civic Light Opera and the Boris
Brott Festival in Ontario.

Kerry has incorporated her playing and singing, along with dance, in both
improvisatory and composed performance work. She has created pieces for,
among others, the Open Gate Theater in Pasadena, Dan/sing Ensemble in
Switzerland, and i Cantori of Los Angeles.

MEGAN YALKUT began studying the vocal music of India in 1988, at first
focusing on the more folkstyle bhajans, or devotional songs, and later on
the classical tradition of North India. In 1994, she began playing the sarod
(a classical North Indian stringed instrument) and the dotar (a folk version
the former, originating in Bengal). Her teachers have included Narendra
well known vocalist of Nepal; maestro Ali Akbar Khan; Montino Bourbon, long
time student of Ali Akbar Khan; and Suresh Vajracharya, a Nepalese sarod
and tabla player. She spent 3 years in Nepal and India as part of her music
study and continues in Santa Barbara, CA. Her focus is on the music as a
spiritual practice.
