New York, NY (PRWEB) June 09, 2016
Karen Salicath Jamali is a professional artist for the last 30 years, living and working in New York City. It wasn’t until an accident four years ago that caused a brain injury that Karen started to play music. Previously unable to play the piano, the brain injury amazingly opened up a new world for Karen, as she began to play beautiful and meditative music.
On June 9th she releases "Young Rain", a collection of sixteen compositions totaling over an hour and twenty minutes. Tracks include: Stroll; Las Vigas de la Luna, Come Down, Young Rain, Singing Stars, Come Sweet May, On the Way, Pages from the Past, Little Memory, I Am Here, Deep Dream, In Corde Meo, Carmen, Casa del Sonata, Between the World, and New Year Meditation.

The songs could be used as meditation music, as they will put the listener into a relaxed state of consciousness. The accident that occurred four years ago caused Karen to have a near-death experience. After a long recovery, she began to hear music all of the time, and decided to record and play what she was experiencing. The result is a beautiful collection of piano music that is highly emotional, and yet still relaxing and enchanting. The accident has opened up a whole new world musically for the visual artist, who can now express herself visually as a sculptor, painter and photographer, but audibly also as a composer and pianist. To see a video of her artwork and music, visit the artist's channel here on YouTube.
As a visual artist, Karen has permanent work displayed in the Jamali Gallery in Soho, New York, as well as numerous galleries internationally. She has received many awards and honors for her artwork, including two Oscars in Art. Her emotional artworks provoke a connection with the viewer to reach a deeper understanding, while her music is also emotive and sublime.
To be released June 9th, "Young Rain" will take you on a relaxing and meditative journey with Karen, who has only been playing piano for two years, but already composes beautiful music. After turning her injury into an incredibly positive and moving experience, Karen Salicath Jamali has created something special with "Young Rain".
