Multidisciplinary artist, passionate activist, and avid pasta maker, C’est Karma, has been named as one of the first 12 artists announced for c/o pop festival in Cologne, Germany. The concerts are open to the general public and international delegates. Since 2004, the festival has brought national and international acts from the fields of electro, indie and related styles to Cologne’s indoor and outdoor stages. Joining Karma this year are established artists as well as newcomers like Bilderbuch, Friedberg, Glauque, Priya Ragu and several more.

Earlier this year, C’est Karma shared new single, Bubblegum, the first from her newly-announced EP Amuse-Bouche which is set to come out this May. A melting pot of identities, 20-year-old Karma Catena (C’est Karma) was raised in Luxembourg by a Portuguese mother and Italian father. The music she makes goes beyond traditional borders, combining
the punk she loved in her mid-teens – NOFX and Jawbreaker – with the hyper-pop – Charlie XCX and SOPHIE – that influences her today.

2021 saw Karma make significant strides forward. Her Farbfilm EP won acclaim from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Elle, Rolling Stone and Wonderland. Its release also saw La Blogotheque invite C’est Karma to play at ARTE Concert Festival 2021 on a stage alongside Damon Albarn and Joan As Police Woman.

With the release of Bubblegum, Karma releases her boldest work to date and offers a taste of what to expect from her forthcoming EP. Speaking about the song, she said:

Bubblegum is a song about my longest friendship. We have known each other since the day we were born and have been very close friends ever since. I wanted to celebrate and explore our differences and the things we have in common. We both went through a lot of changes over the past 20 years of our friendship but somehow, our ends still meet. We now live in different cities but visit each other regularly. This was fascinating to me, how two people can grow up together but live totally different lives, and 20 years later the love for one another did not fade in the slightest.”

Karma moved to Amsterdam in the summer, leaving behind two protective bubbles in Luxembourg and her family. It’s a topic which she explores on Bubblegum and across the Amuse-Bouche EP. A passionate activist – she’s been active in various climate youth groups – the EP also sees her explore the impact of capitalism on low-income families and the sickening
amount of wealth owned by the increasingly growing number of billionaires in the world.
