Karmarama perform a wide and varied repertoire, combining pop / folk / electro and jazz influences. Taking cover versions or original songs as a base, we transform them through improvisation, atypical instrumentation and unique arrangements. It's a true melting pot of styles and sounds, where the voice, the sitar and percussion are supported by keyboards, live loops, guitars, etc., to create an performance geared to a wide audience.
Here are a few examples of well-known songs given the KARMARAMA treatment:
Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush)
I Can't Feel My Face (The Weeknd)
Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran)
Satisfaction (Rolling Stones)
A Thousand Years (Sting)
Wait In Vain (Bob Marley)
True Colors (Cindy Lauper)
Bittersweet Symphony (The Verve)
Dreams (Fleetwood Mac)
We Found Love (Rihanna)
In The Air Tonight (Phil Collins)
Here Comes The Rain Again (Eurythmics)
