Bio: Nelida Karr is known to be a contemporary musical revelation of the rhythms and sounds of Equatorial Guinea. The award-winning singer and multi-instrumentalist is a new voice in the world music scene. She classifies her music as "Afro-Fusion" suffused with the many influences she assimilated while growing up in Malabo the capital city of Africa’s only Spanish speaking country, Equatorial Guinea. Her sound is an eclectic mix of the music of the Bubi ethnic group and Equatoguinean rhythms like Katya, kotto, bonko, mokom and antonobe, as well as jazz, blues, Spanish and Latin music that she nevertheless incorporates into a sound all her own. Besides composing, Karr sings, plays guitar, piano, cello and percussion. She is backed by her husband Elvis-Bob Ohia Bechiro, a guitarist and vocalist who accompanies her everywhere. Last year Karr won the first prize of the Spain and Equatorial Guinea 'vis a vis' festival, leading to a tour in Spain where she and Ohia Bechiro graced some of the largest Spanish world music festival stages with their exuberant talent with diverse musical synergies both vocal and instrumental dexterity. https://www.nelidakarrmusic.com/
