1) Serbian 80s glam pop metal band Karizma was formed in Belgrade in 1985 and was named after Kiss song "Charisma" from their 1979 album Dynasty. In 1988 Karizma won the first place at Gitarijada festival in Zaječar and released their debut album Vreme je za nas (It's Time for Us) in 1989, in the following lineup: Dušan Zarić (vocals), Dušan Janićijević (guitar), Dragoljub Popović (guitar), Zoran Miletić (bass guitar), Dejan Tomović (keyboard) and Srđan Milenković (drums). After the album was released Zarić left the band due to his army obligations. A former Otkrovenje member Dejan Jelisavčić replaced Zarić. In 1990 the band was awarded with MESAM's award for the best debut act in 1989. The same year Karizma was an opening band on Kerber tour.
In 1991 the band released its second studio album U snovima (In the Dreams) with Goran Tadić (drums) as Karizma's new member. Album featured a cover of Oliver Mandić's song "Ljuljaj me nežno". In 1993 bass guitarist Saša Đokić and drummer Dragan Živković replaced Tomović and Tadić. In 1994 the band recorded demos for the album that was never released and disbanded soon after.
In 2005 Karizma reunited with Nemanja Petrović (keyboard) and a former Jugosloveni and Tifa Band member Saša Đokić (guitar) as the band's new members. The same year band released album Retro-active, which consisted of the remastered songs from U snovima, song "Ludnica" recorded in 1994 and the new version of "Vrati se". In 2006 a former Ruski Rulet and Alisa keyboardist Nenad Đorđević replaced Petrović, and one of the original Karizma members, Dragoljub Popović returned to the band.

2) Bulgarian pop duo Karizma ("КариZма" or "Каризма" in Bulgarian) is a partnership of Galya (born and raised in Siberia) and Miroslav. Their first single, entitled "Рискувам да те имам", lead the group to phenomenal popularity - Karizma is the only Bulgarian act to receive 9 national awards in a year while nominated in 16 categories. The band released their first album "Еклисиаст Том I" in 2006.
Galya and Miro started singing together a piano bar named Opera. In the documentary КаriZma Retrospective Movie they said that they had decided to work together, because their voices matched each other. One of the first proposals for a name was 2Good4U, but Galya rejected it.
The beginning of the duet КариZма was in 1999. They worked for non-Bulgarian music companies, such as EMA, TOCO int. and others. Two years later the famous Bulgarian music composer Mitko Shterev helped them with their first single, Riskuvam da te imam (I risk to own you). Before the release of the single Kolko mi lipsvash ("How much I miss you") in 2002, KariZma worked with other performers, like Toni, Maria Ilieva, Santra, Spens, Ava, Irra, etc. This delayed the work on their debut album. Moreover, on March 13, 2006, Galya entered the VIP Brother 1 House, where she stayed for 18 days. Their next hits were Shte izbiagam li ot teb?("Will I run away from you?") (2003), Mr. Killer (2004), and Minavash prez men ("You pass through me") (2005).
In 2006 they released their long anticipated first album, Eklisiast. After that, Karizma break-up.
3)DJ/producer Karizma (aka Kris Klayton) began his musical career at age 13, djing for fashion shows and college parties. He later landed a radio show on college radio station WEAA playing hip hop in the US city of Baltimore, at the same time gigging at clubs and showing a preference for house music. He would often bump into DJ Spen and bug him for advice; fate had it that Spen and Karizma would work together at radio station V103. The two worked together on track E.B.W.2.R.T.W. for the first album of Spen's Jasper Street Company project.
Spen & Karizma (now with Basement Boys productions) went on to remix Everything But The Girl, Lenny Kravitz, Ann Nesby, Ron Carroll, Roy Ayers, Bob Sinclar, Kathy Brown and Ministers de la Funk, among many others. It was in these remixes that Karizma developed the "deepah dubs" and "deepah ones" moniker for his renditions.
Karizma recently struck out on his own and formed Kohesive Productions. His remixes, re-edits and productions are heard weekly at the "Sky Lounge" bar, his residency in Baltimore. Karizma is also an accomplished international DJ and has recently toured the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
4) The jazz/fusion band Karizma hail from the US city of Los Angeles. Formed by David Garfield in 1983 the most recent line-up consisted of Garfield on keys, Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Neil Stubenhaus on bass guitar and Michael Landau on rhythm guitar.
5) Croatian cover band from Samobor.
6) Freestyle singer, who released two singles in the early 1990's: "Fascination" & "Consistence".
