Once upon a time, two sisters named Kelly and Kamille stumbled upon a secret musical garden that entwined classical grandeur and lush pop sensibilities. They brought back melodies inspired by soulful creators from Brahms to Bjork to The Beatles, and they called themselves KARMINA—"song" in Latin.
Since then, KARMINA's transcendent arrangements and haunting vocal harmonies have appeared in feature films/television shows including PAN, Birth of a Nation, The Lorax, The Hive, Reign, Pretty Little Liars, Shameless, CSI:NY, Switched At Birth, and How I Met Your Mother. They've written, sung, produced and performed a vast catalogue of original music; toured the US, UK and Europe; and opened for Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles, Carol King, Train and, most recently, John Legend at the Los Angeles Nokia Theater.
After back to back summer tours of France and Israel, Karmina is full-speed-ahead back in the studio breaking ground with a new record that features the orchestral arranging of award-winning ﬁlm composer John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon, The Bourne Identity). Critics have described their new cinematic indie-pop sound as "a cross between Florence Welch and Mumford and Sons" replete with vivid imagery and enthralling storytelling. Their new release, Queens of Heart, pays homage to powerful women who have made an impact—much like KARMINA strives to do in 2016.
