Hello, I’m Karina! I’m a singer/songwriter from Winnipeg and I play the ukulele.
When I was a kid I would make up songs from reading signs and watching movies, I could make up a song about anything. It was only in this past year that I realized that this was my passion and that I want to be a professional musical artist. Now, through performing at open-mics and working with other musicians in Winnipeg, I’m getting ready to release my debut album “Indigo”.
“Indigo” is often used to describe a child who doesn’t fit in with the rest of society because of their hyper-awareness of their surroundings.
Indigos often feel out of place when they are young because they are more independent, intelligent, and emotionally mature than other people their age. While this can cause problems early on, generally Indigos figure out how to cope even if still feeling a little bit like an outsider.
Indigos are critical of everything including themselves. They’re very empathetic and sensitive and can see people's true intentions better than most. Indigos are also curious, independent, open-minded and artistic. Indigo children want to understand everything. They can’t stop asking why. While others will accept a simple answer, Indigos want to dig below the surface until they truly understand the thing in question.
My debut album is named Indigo because it shares my struggles and realizations with being an Indigo person among people I don’t fit in with. Each song tells a story of the different waves I’ve experienced while learning to cope with being different.
Stay tuned for my album release in 2019.
