With her “popcorn personality” that jumps out of her music scene Carmen leaves the audience wanting more of her sassy eclectic style and her tongue n cheek nature. Her versatile repertoire of songs can keep the room from feeling completely comfortable and romantic to getting you on your feet dancing the Congo-line! Her Band called – The Carmen Rodrigues Band consists of a drummer (Carl), bass guitar (Craig) and guitarist (Chris) and they have just WON Battle of the Bands against 16 other bands across KZN. All of Carmen’s original music comes from her own personal experiences. She dreams of her music being a source of inspiration, a place of hope and upliftment and comfort to her fans.Creating her personal blend of rock, pop, indie and dance genres drives her as an entertainer. Carmen’s career has taken her from performances in New York to currently just completed her first album called LET IT ALL GO that is being released to all social platforms as we speak!
