Adding to their distinctiveness was the fact that during long instrumental passages, members of the band would dance onstage, adding those sounds to the instrumental mix. Carmen consists of: David Allen (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards) who wrote most of the music of Carmen Roberto Amaral (vocals, vibes, chimes, other percussion) who also wrote several songs and danced with Angela Allen in the flamenco style. Angela Allen (vocals, piano, mellotron, synthesizer), David Allen's sister, who performed on a special stage together with Roberto during Carmen concerts to amplify the sound of the flamenco dancing.
