a silent show
screaming stars
dancing dust
a deceitful red moon ...
Encore to thoughtful words, beautiful music and a powerful performance by Karin Hougaard in her show Alien Sky. What a privilege to have had a personal and up close chat to Karin at the end of her visit to South Africa. We chatted about her recent Alien Sky shows, play some of her new songs, find out about her passion for the environment and look at what the future holds. An honour to partner with Karin on the iStart2 initiative.

Since her debut as teen singing sensation in the 1980’s, she has released 10 groundbreaking albums and is included on various compilations.

Over and above her music and acting career - Karin has had various one-woman art shows featuring her paintings and graphic works.
