Karina Nistal shares a beautiful fusion of her Latin roots together with modern influences in her music. Opening her arms to embrace the world, delving deep into her creative subconscious, exploring life and its meaning - she is inspirational.
‘Je Ne Sais Quoi’ is her new album which holds a range of pop, hip hop and soul; both English and Spanish lyrics; spontaneous and chilled mood phases; and words of optimism and the heart.
Tell us how you got into music, when was the very first moment you realised you wanted to sing?
“I was between 5 and 6 years old when I first got into music. My parents had me in piano and ballet lessons. I remember sitting in the back of my mom's Buick singing to every song that came on the radio.“
What were the ideas & inspiration behind this new album?
“I wanted to write an album that showed all of my music influences. I wanted to share the high points as well as the low points. It was intended to be a thoughtful and multifaceted piece of work.”
Can you describe the music industry in Houston?
“There isn't a big music industry in Houston but there is an amazing music scene. There are so many beautiful, raw, and diverse talents!”
