Karun is a young artist well on her way to building a music empire. We are excited to go on this journey with her and to learn from her experiences so far!

In Karun’s words, “I’m excited to have an intimate space where I can share some things I’ve learned about the music business, with a special focus on the renaissance that’s happening in the Kenyan industry right now. I’m looking forward to shedding some light on my new process, and sharing a bit of what I’ve been working on.”
