Karim Has “Good Food” and Good Vibes For Everyone

by The Alchemist

Karim is an artist that currently lives in New York City, but has lived all around the world. He descended from the Mandingo tribe in West Africa and actually grew up in North-West DC. Since then he has gained a huge following from uploading Facebook videos of himself singing, which lead to him being chosen to tour the world with Nigerian pop star Korede Bello. While on tour, a talent scout chose Karim to compete in the X Factor USA singing competition, where he received a unanimous “yes” from judges Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, and Kelly Rowland. After the competition, Karim moved to Los Angeles, CA where he transitioned into the realm of acting, quickly securing a recurring role in Sony Entertainment’s episodic TV show ‘Startup.


His newest track is called, “Good Food” and it’s got a very unique vibe to it. The song’s production has a very upbringing feel to it, that is complemented by his unforgettable vocals.  His voice really takes the track to a next level, as it brings the listener to a place of pleasure and relaxation. Check out the track below.

My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.

This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
