Berlin-based (and Jerusalem-born) multi-disciplinary artist Carmel Michaeli has constructed the vessel named KARMA SHE to transcend the stage and create extra-sensorial musical performances. KARMA SHE’s bass-heavy electronic musical production is complemented by a ghetto twist of explicit vocals. Together with her creature crew, KARMA SHE creates a highly visual live-set that combines choreography and ecstatic ritualistic elements that lure you into her universe — a universe inspired by Michaeli’s Jewish heritage and subcultures. She is the writer, composer, producer and vocalist for KARMA SHE’s music and self-directs all of her performances and music videos with a punk DIY-attitude, collaborating with other artists from her community. The project is an ongoing deconstruction of pop conventions; the result is both mystifying and seductive.
»SECRET LIGHT«, relesed on 5 March, is the fourth and last single from »MY NAKED DEVOTION«. Again, the video is self-directed and edited by the artist. We see the artist dressing up (and down) her younger pot-smoking brother while the message of the song is that real beauty comes from within. The video was shot in a bomb shelter in Tel Aviv which used to be the artist’s studio when she was still living in Israel.
