Karishina” is an album in which Helena Recalde and her musicians alternately perform original compositions, a traditional South American song “No Valentin” and a theme from the jazz repertoire “Afro Blue”. Within this musical universe, the nostalgia of Andean melodies mixes with the piquant joy of Afro Pacific rhythms, passing through jazz tones and giddy improvisations, all embellished with textures of nature and committed titles. 

Karishina means -woman unfit for chores-. It is an insult, a mockery only addressed to women.

“This word resonates in me like a strength, a quality and I would like with this album pay a tribute to people who resist and refuse to submit” H. Recalde
