Music Critical Reviews
Karen Salicath Jamali is Enveloping the Audience Within the Purity of the Instrumental ‘Angel Blue’
Daily Music Roll, October 12, 2019 - Sometimes it is necessary to isolate oneself from the chaos of the real world and let the soul free amidst the calming nature of music. In this kind of moment, there is no better choice than the renowned composer cum pianist Karen Salicath Jamali’s instrumental ‘Angel Blue’.
The multi-awarded artist has let her heart and soul flow over the entire soundscape of this track. She has reinvented the art of piano playing through this track. The sound has a magic in it that quickly enveloped me within the calmness and the mild flow.
The track sets up the ambiance perfect for the soul to meander freely around the chords of the piano. The unfaltering notes help in connecting well with the heart of the human body. As the song progressed, I was forced to get drown into the delivery style of the composer.
It is hard for any artist to hold the attraction of any listener through instrumentation. But, Karen has done this in an enthralling way.
Karen started taking interest in piano playing after recovering from an accident that had occurred in 2012. It took her 3 years to recover from the injury and this drastic incident pushed her towards making music that can relax the human senses and make their life a bit easier.
It was surely bliss for me to come across an artist that loves to keep people calm through the unspoken words of music.

“Karen Salicath Jamali- Young Rain Album” Review, OddFuse London
Even though this is meant to be an album review, I feel tempted to actually treat it like a scientific study and call this article “The Curious Case Of Karen Salicath Jamali”.
It is indeed a truly remarkable story, one that ultimately leads into audible warmth and comfort in the recently released “Young Rain” album by Karen Salicath Jamali.
So many questions arise from it, but most importantly, it perhaps confirms a fundamental understanding held by many including me – that we are infinite beings with infinite knowledge and wisdom which is somehow locked and accessible within us.
Now, to get straight to the point. The wonderful and soothing piano arrangements that you hear throughout this spectacular album, weren’t even in the picture up until a couple of years ago. When Karen experienced a near death accident and sustained a serious brain injury, but wait for it… this is where it gets weird – she was previously unable to play piano until the accident!
Now, how can one process this kind of information without being completely and utterly mesmerized? I believe people like Karen are very rare indeed and they surface as a direct manifestation of the universe to teach us something. Kind of like an avatar for the universal and infinite mind.
I know it’s deep and some of you will probably find it hard to understand what I’m talking about so I’ll just stick to art & music… To put it simply, Karen is unbelievably talented and special. “Young Rain” has intriguing healing properties that can take you on a magical journey of wonder and discovery. It is relaxing and it combines piano harmonies which remind us that everyday is a new chance to celebrate life.
Karen’s talent aren’t just limited to beautiful melodies and caring renditions – she’s actually multi-talented. Having graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, School of Design in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1991, the Danish-born American, now based in New York, has been working as a painter, sculptor and photographer for the past 30 years. She’s also been involved in over 100 solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including the famous Louvre Museum in Paris, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Monreale, Italy, and the Kume Museum in Tokyo.
I mean… what more can you say to that? Slay girl… just slay!
Karen has to be the highlight of the year for me, hands down, the most charismatic artist I’ve reviewed this year. Her story makes the “Young Rain” album an exceptional piece as well, one that I probably won’t forget and a story that I will tell everyone and anyone that I believe should hear -The day when I got to write about Karen Salicath Jamali.

“Karen Salicath Jamali- Angel Light Album” Review, Audiosteez
Karen Salicath Jamali has to be one of the world’s seven wonders. We are not completely sure about her discography but we believe “Angel Light” to be either her first or second album, but boy, is she good!! Not only is she incredible on the piano but she’s also a a painter, sculptor and photographer? She might as well have been born a goddess.
All jokes aside, Karen as been through extreme situations which moulded her into who she is today, but one in particular, has allowed for her music to be felt and experienced in such a manner that you most likely haven’t seen or heard anything like it, other than in the movies that is. One of those rare cases most people struggle to understand or grasp:
Karen never played the piano before, until 4 years ago a life threatening accident left her with brain injuries and in need of constant care. After a long recovery, she was suddenly drawn into the world of music and gained the unexpected gift of being able to play the piano – Something she couldn’t do before the accident – She is the human embodiment of music and of the term “Everything happens for reason.”
Her catalogue consists of 3 albums, two of them (including “Angel Light”) were released in 2015 and her latest released only a few months ago. All of them are great musical pieces which are guaranteed to help you destress, relax and even daydream.
Emotionally charged, expansive and invigorating, Angel light is a short album with just seven songs but as they say, great things come in small packages! Make sure to give it a listen on link https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/angel-light/id1011009415 and go support this Angel in human form. We hope you guys will like it as much as we did!
