Darebaba.net: MOST PROMISING FEMALE ARTISTE IN AFRICA: NELIDA KARR (EQUATORIAL GUINEA)
She is the daughter of a Producer and Singer Samuel Karr. Nelida Karr grew up to the sound of the Bubi music, religious songs and Equatorial Guinea rhythms like Kasya and bouko that can be found in her songs.
The recognition of Nelida Karr by ICEF Malebo, who released her debut album “Ewerawera” in 2010, dates back to 2007, when the Spanish Cultural Center of Malabo awarded Nelida Karr with the first prize of the Spanish song contest.
Since then Nelida Karr has been performing at various top festivals, concerts across Africa, Europe and Latin America.
The year 2014 began with a new name in the diary of some of the most prestigious media associated with the African sounds. In the same year a publication of the Africa Report quoted Nelida Karr as one of the six people to watch out for in Central Africa.
As one of the top ten finalist in the RFI Decouvert in 2013 award coupled with the release of her second album “Batobiera” also in the same year, Nelida Karr has reached a prominent place in the new pool of emerging talent from Africa. Nelida Karr sings in Spanish, French, English and in several other languages of her country with ease.
Congratulations to Nelida Karr of Equatorial Guinea, an emerging act from the Central Africa Region gaining acceptance all through the African continent. She poses a challenge as a contender for the coveted award. Can Nelida Karr win the category? Your thoughts on Nelida?
