Biography

There are more than one artists named “Karnak”

—1
Karnak is a Brazilian band, from Sao Paulo leaded by André Abujamra. It is known for mixing diverse music styles, not only Brazilian but from the whole world, with pop and rock. Many critics consider Karnak’s music style being world music, label that they refuse, claiming that their “ethnic” sound results from their intuition, not from researches.

Karnak were one of the most impressive exponents of the florentine dark-wave scene, together with their friends Neon, Polyactive/Pankow and Litfiba. They printed officially only one 7’’ (“when the doors are closed”), on the storical label Electric Eye, directed by Claudio Sorgi: obsessive rhytms adapt well to the liquid harmonies of guitar, and the hysteric and lamenting vocals are fantastically inserted into the general context, alongside strident pseudo-noise effects. Simply great.
