KARAMA was formed by Moroccan Oud player and composer Soufian Saihi in 2011, his compositions fuse tradition with modernity, finding inspiration from the sacred Gnawa music, North African and Classical Arabic music. KARAMA’s songs tell the story of the immigrant, the homeless, technology and the Arab Spring. Their music wonders brilliantly through diverse sonic landscapes, meditative, funky and beautifully melodic. Since the release of their first album ‘’One year in London” in 2011 the band performed in many prestigious venues and festivals. Its music was broadcast during Soufian’s appearances on many TV and Radio shows notably by the BBC, MBC and Al Ghad Al Arabi channels, KARAMA is now considered one of the most popular Arabic bands in the UK. With members from Venezuela, Spain, Japan, Morocco and the UK, KARAMA is a unique experience.
