Monica Jasmine Karo also known as MpathSoul - is a singer-songwriter, actor and spoken-word artist. Monica has been performing in Naarm for 10 years and has an authentic soulful voice, highlighting her Gunai, Gunditjmara and mixed European heritage. She infuses fiery spoken-word poetry with her music and her work has been described as “connected to earth and spirit, portraying important messages of woman’s wisdom”. In 2021 Monica performed alongside Allara, Bumpy, Alice Skye, Ensemble Dutala and friends, for the Opening of the Yaluk-ut Weelam Ngargee Festival and the opening of Yirramboi Festival. Monica performed as a leading role in Ilbijerri Theatre Company’s production, Heart Is A Wasteland by John Harvey, music by Lydia Fairhall, directed by Rachael Maza, premiering the sold-out season at Darwin Festival 2021 and will be releasing her debut album in 2022.
Monica will be joined by her good friend and singer-songwriter Nina Rose who blends her velvety vocals and mellowing guitar rhythms taking you on a folky acoustic carpet ride. Influenced by artists such as Tracy Chapman, Emmylou Harris and Nina Simone, her original songs tell tales of love, loss and everything in between. Whether she’s singing in bars, on the street, in nursing homes, to her little nephews, she brings a contagious energy that will get you grooving along.
