Muzyka Karyny jest jak jej rodzina - multikulturowa. Ojciec pochodzi z Gwinei Bissau, matka z Cabo Verde. Karyna jest jak jej muzyka - też multikulturowa. Urodziła się w Bissau, ale mieszkała już w rożnych częściach świata, skąd czerpie inspiracje. Na obu albumach (Mindjer i N'Na) słychać wpływy miejsc, które artystkę ukształtowały. Ze wszystkich stron świata. Są więc klimaty afrykańskie, latynoskie i europejskie. Wszystkie podane w subtelnym, delikatnym na ogół sosie urban music. Muzyka trudna do sklasyfikowania, nieprzewidywalna, zagrana i zaśpiewana na najwyższym poziomie - po prostu znakomita. Jak mówi sama kompozytorka, o ile na pierwszym albumie chciała pokazać więcej elementów tradycyjnych, związanych z wpływami, jakim ulegała jako artystka, to druga płyta jest bardziej taneczna, wzbogacona delikatną elektroniką. Perełką na "N'Na" jest też niewątpliwie autorska wersja Karyny utworu "Summertime" Gershwina... Oj warto !
Na scenie wokalistce towarzyszy czterech muzyków, których akompaniament z wraz głosem Karyny przenosi nas w oka mgnieniu do tajemniczych krain świata, gdzie możemy dotrzeć tylko w ten sposób. Zapraszamy w tę podróż wszystkich zainteresowanych organizacją koncertów divy pop, dancehall, african, urban, jazz, world music. Prosimy o kontakt.

kilka słów o nowej płycie artystki:
KARYNA GOMES Releases the album entitled “N'NA”
"N'na" is Karyna’s second album of original songs as released by Kavi Music and succeeds to her 2014 released album "Mindjer" The album “N’na” released last September 24, 2021, has a very special fact on the artist, as it is linked to her origins and roots, the day that marks the independence of her homeland Guinea-Bissau. The artist describes the album as following; "N'na" is a record where I reveal both my pop and electronic music influences. I escaped from the sounds I used and show a more danceable side, with my faith and freedom. The roots of the traditional music are and will always be presentin my songs, but it gained a new modern touch through the rhythms "Afro-pop" and "dancehall”. I believe that the Creole language as spoken in my homeland Guinea-Bissau, gains different forms to a musical approach and that it will not only be used in local urban traditional rhythms. I believe that there is a place in the international music market from such produced music, and not only in the market of "world music" or the songs labelled as "exotic", but we can also contribute in a rhythmic and melodious way -enhanced by the phonetics of our language –in Pop, Jazz music and wherever. Our homeland is our language or our languages. In my case, I share several countries due to the fact that also I started singing in the Portuguese language, as well as in Creole. We are a legion of pop artists from Guinea-Bissau and we are gradually gaining ground in the Portuguese-speaking world of music as well as worldwide. N'na -the name for mother in the Mandinga language -contributes to this movement that seeks more openness in the universe of global music, as well as enjoying a certain status in the matrix that Africa is. Electronic elements that, together with an aesthetic that is characteristic to us, are our linguistic and philosophical roots and our fingerprint in this sonic crowd. N'na it the mother, it's love, it's salt, it's light, it's fresh, it's whatever you want... "Karyna Gomes -Torres Vedras, July 2021
N'Na was conceived and composed at home, in her small studio. Recorded and produced between Torres Vedras, Mozambique, Atlântico Blue Studios and Panela Records.
