About Mayssa Karaa

With her captivating multi-octave voice and persuasive cross-cultural message, vocalist and songwriter Mayssa Karaa defines a new era of musical inclusion. Her songs tell of a story connecting her origins in the ancient land of Lebanon to her adopted home of Los Angeles, California. Cinema audiences might identify Mayssa's voice from the hit film American Hustle, where her Arabic version of the Sixties classic "White Rabbit" was a standout track on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack album. Indeed, melding Arabic influences into Western music is Mayssa's forte: notable recordings in her catalog include a version of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" accompanied by the band's Scott Page.

Mayssa is currently putting the finishing touches on her full-length English solo debut.
