Caitlin Belem grew up in a house full of music in Northern Wyoming. She fell in love with the fiddle at a young age and started playing, both through private lessons and with her parents. Later, through school, friends and family, she began to play alto saxophone and guitar. Since then, she has had the incredible good fortune to live, study, and play music in Brazil, Cuba, the Basque Country, Ohio, New York, and most recently, Seattle, Washington. Caitlin currently plays with the bands MaracujÁ (www.maracujaband.com), At Five (www.atfivemusic.com), and The Fireants (www.fireantsband.com). She has experience teaching music, Spanish, social dance, and Capoeira Angola.
