Karina Buhr is a Brazilian singer, musician, and actress. Buhr was born in Bahia, but grew up in the state of Pernambuco, where she was introduced to the the region's folk-music. She formed the band Comadre Fulozinha
in 1997, which became successful in its presentation of the musical traditions of Pernambuco. For her first solo album, Eu Menti Pra Você, however, she stayed away from the safety of the maracatus and local rhythms from Recife that had made her band famous. Instead she drew from her second career as an actress, and also from the indie culture of Sao Paulo where she lives.
