THE NEW ALBUM
By Patricia Palumbo
Karina showing off her legs. Karina with her hair dyed yellow. Karina rolling the microphone's cable around her neck. Karina deconstructing herself, desacralizing women's role, on stage or not. Being 'well behaved' and maiden-like was never her thing. Can't women sing and play the drum? Let's start a band for that! With Comadre Florzinha, Karina and a bunch of other talents--restless girls singing and drumming not only in Pernambuco, but all over the world.
LONGE DE ONDE
by Ronaldo Evangelista
Karina Buhr's music has both 'yes' and 'no'. In her poetry, there is hope and death, loneliness and love. If writing songs is standing up for every possibility, a single song can fulfill every idea, thought and sensation anyone is able to feel and imagine. From the first to the last, all eleven tracks of Longe de Onde, Karina's second solo album, show that life is nothing but a big surprise.
EU MENTI PRA VOCÊ
by Patrícia Palumbo
In her stalking pants, girlie shoes, braided hair and colored make up, Karina Burh almost fools an unwary individual with a coy face. Soon, her greenish eyes will launch themselves towards the audience and some acid verses will come out of her sweet mouth: “a hatred fury is ready to burst”, she chants. In a lullaby made for kids in Baghdad, she sings: “go to sleep before you die, it's raining fire and the streets are burning up”.
