Karama is an exciting London-based band, led by Moroccan Oud player Soufian Saihi. His compositions are based around oud, clarinet, double bass and percussion. Finding inspiration from the beautiful ecstatic Gnawa, North African and Arabic classical music as well as the diverse sounds of London streets during his busking experience, the music wonders brilliantly through diverse sonic landscapes that range from Tinariwen to Alice Coltrane, superbly funky and beautifully melodic.

With members from Venezuela, Spain, Japan, Morocco and the UK, Karama is an utterly unique experience.
