Confronting your demons never sounded so beautiful. Karímah delivers an emotionally rich live performance full of fury and hope in both English and French.
K A R Í M A H is a proud black femme; genre-bending singer/songwriter of Soul, R&B and alternative pop. K A R Í M A H’s latest material is inspired by her favourite sayings: "Reveal to heal", and "you've got to go through hell to get out of it". With a penchant for going against the grain with her tongue pressed firmly to her cheek, it's no surprise that her upcoming debut EP is entitled "THIS IS THE END". K A R Í M A H's tackles topics of feminism, questioning gender roles, growing up, emotional abuse and suicide, all with the lens of a survivor. Singing in both English and French, K A R Í M A H embraces both the doom and gloom and beauty of life in her catchy yet unique songs.
K A R Í M A H's music is a cathartic journey—soulful and dark, full of fury and hope.
