Reviews about her CD Fabra

-One of the more fascinating and mighty addictive albums to find its way into my stereo recently comes from the Swedish composer, multi instrumentalist, and singer Karin Höghielm. Karin’s music is an eclectic mix of avant-garde chamber music with various traditional music influences. The thing I really like about ‘Fabra’ is that the music is very diverse and differs from song to song. On this recording you can hear classical, folk, medieval, Celtic, and even some other indefinable influences, which of course all sound fantastic.

Nerikes Allehanda (national daily newspaper) – Sweden

- She creates again a fascinating mixture from Mari Boine, Meredith Monk, Stimmhorn and Wim Mertens.
Rec Rec - Swizerland

-Moving, contemplative and thought-provoking. Karin Höghielms music is also comparable with contemporary-classics like John Tavener och Henryk Górecki – but with more influences of traditional folkmusic.
