Karina Nuvo is propelled by a powerful heart-force that ensures she never backs away from adversity. Nothing, not even a debilitating illness, could keep her from pursuing her dreams. She found her home and her strength in her voice and will never let go. Karina couples classic musical influences with her own heartfelt instincts and authenticity, resulting in an unrivaled sound best described as Nuvo Soul. Her vocal styling conveys a sultry unapologetic power, balanced by her sensual clarity and broadened along a gospel / rock edge. The singer hails from Miami and is a first generation Cuban-American. She writes and sings fluently in both English and Spanish, extending her appeal across cultures. My music encompasses all cultures, races and genders theres gospel, theres R&B, theres disco, and theres Latin jazz. As long as its soulful and authentic, said Karina. She's so versatile, she has worked with some of the most distinguished jazz, R& B and blues singers in the world. It wasn't until Karina was 19 years old, however, that she became aware that her voice was far beyond ordinary, which explains an initial bout with stage fright. She began performing original songs around Miami , but decided she needed to follow her aspirations to the West Coast. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue her career she was stricken by illness and forced to abandon her dreams for six long years. And with the same uncompromising strength that she lives by today, Karina emerged with an unstoppable creative drive. Meanwhile, she has selected an amazing team of talented people to ensure her vision can be realized. I'm living other peoples dreams, and I don't take that for granted because I sat for six years watching others live my dreams! Karina is an artist who will have a tremendous affect on you. Currently Karina has finished her highly anticipated Debut album "NUVOSOUL" in which she Co wrote -produced and sang in English And Spanish. It blends all that is true to Karina's Style, with Soul, Jazz , R&B and Latin all mixed together for a truly unique and inspiring Album. In particular, her record includes a spicy salsa-flavored rendition of Shining Star, Karina's homage to the group that has influenced her the most, Earth Wind and Fire. Her message is honest and positive and her delivery will uplift even the most cynical spirit. Karina integrates every element of her mind, body and soul into her music, which has produced odes to the homeland she has never seen, Cuba, as well as gospel numbers like " I Will Love You", that exposes her soul while inspiring others to charge on with hope . She is determined to spearhead a bilingual soulful sound and hopes to one day bring her music back to her parents homeland. Karina is polished and ready to take on the world with her music and style. . My music is what I've created from all the things that truly inspire me. Its NUVO SOUL.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
Let's be audacious, my friends!
