The New Impromptu Quartet featuring Karina Lehman

Exploring a world of styles from jazz to Bossa Nova, Latin, funk, reggae, and soul, with a fresh and open musical approach, lush melodies and harmonies deep rhythmic bass lines, and driving percussion characterise the group’s sound. Our featured guest Karina Lehman is a Chilean singer/songwriter. Captivating audiences with her unique blend of smooth vocals and Afro-Latin rhythms her music is a refreshing fusion of genres that leaves a lasting impression on all who hear her. She sings in Portuguese, Spanish and English and Beat Magazine has described her sound as "exciting, refreshing, and undeniably unique”.

Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of artists, including Natalia Lafourcade, Violeta Parra, Perota Chingo, Lido Pimienta, Bjork, and Marissa Monte, Karina has created a sound that is truly her own. In April 2020, Karina debuted her solo project with the release of "Son de la Luna Dormida." Since then, she has continued to experiment with different Afro-Latin genres, releasing original songs like "Contigo," "Sunset Dreams," "Vagabundeando," "Winter," "Oh Eah," and "No seas Malo.”

Since forming over a decade ago, The New Impromptu Quartet has performed with featured guests from all over the world such as Vivian Sessoms (USA),  Lazaro Numa (Cuba) , Eric McGrath (Ireland/Spain), Pat Powell, Oscar Jimenez and Leila Negrau (Reunion) and Paul Van Ross to name a few.
