Growing up in Chicago with a musical and multi-cultural background, Karima has become impassioned to learn about the world through cultural and artistic exchange, specifically music and media. She been fortunate enough to spend time in a number of European countries, North Africa, and the South Pacific Islands and is currently (until May 2010) living near Marseille, France working as an English Language Teaching Assistant.
While in college in Illinois, Karima created the position of World Music Director at WVKC 90.7 FM, Knox College’s radio station and spent four years producing and hosting her weekly radio show “World Kaleidoscope”, in addition to building up the school’s world music library and producing world music concerts. She also organized the school’s International Fair and Pan-African Conference every year—activities that led to her being chosen for the Knox College Houston-Haring Award, given to the senior student most dedicated to promoting international understanding on campus.
From there she’s worked with such Chicago institutions as the Old Town School of Folk Music as the Community Projects Intern, and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs as part of the Chicago Summer Dance and Chicago World Music Festival team. She is extremely excited to be having her first (and surely not last) WOMEX experience this year in Copenhagen! See you there!
