From playing keyboards and singing in a Senegalese mbalax band to composing and performing music for professional dance productions, Karen loves what music brings to life and is a multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, clarinet, percussion). She has sung and played in wide ranging contexts (think sacred choral music and psychedelic rock via street theatre!), and is proud to have collaborated with a wide variety of musicians and performers from across the UK and beyond, including Mamadou & The Super Libidor Band / Andy Frizell Theatre Orchestra / Bisakha Sarker MBE / Emily & the Faves / Dawn Penn.
Karen has taught performance/ensemble/
instrumental skills in further education, and has worked on community music projects with More Music, MZONE, SOLA ARTS, Chaturangan and others.
