Karyna Gomes is a singer and composer. Born to a Guinea-Bissau father and a Cape-Verde mother in the small city of Bissau, she grew up listening to traditional music, local urban rhythms, and sounds from all over the world. Her music is rooted in the courtyard gatherings typical of tropical societies, and was influenced by her life in three continents – Africa, Latin America and Europe. She started her career singing in the gospel group “Rejoicing Mass Choir” in São Paulo, Brazil, where she lived for five years. After returning to her country in 2007, Karyna was invited by Adriano Ferreira (Atchutchi) to sing in the historical and revolutionary group “Super Mama Djombo”. In 2014 she launched her first album “Mindjer” (Get!Records), which awarded her with two Best Singer prizes in Guinea-Bissau and got her selected for a showcase in the Atlantic Music Expo 2015, in Cape-Verde. Karyna currently lives in Lisbon, Portugal.
