Still from UpClose 2022

Karina Lehman | UpClose 2022


“We recorded 2 of my original’s compositions and performed in a trio format with two talented musicians, Amla Periakarpan in the flute and Rodolfo Despaigne “Panga” in the congas.

“Vagabundeando”, a gentle bossa-nova that talks about finding your life purpose and the journey you need to take to find this purpose, and “Traigo un son” an optimistic song inspired by the rhythms and textures of Cuban music.

I’m truly grateful to be part of this new season of UpClose, it’s not only a great opportunity to share my music and represent my culture and country but also to gain exposure and contribute to the multicultural arts scene in Melbourne. I had a great time shooting with Harmonic Whale and MAV team at the iconic Preston Market, they made me feel very comfortable, and enjoyed every minute.”
