Growing up in the Netherlands and raised by a beautiful queen, Josje, Kymara was taught the importance of talking about and expressing your feelings. This upbringing is incredibly present in Kymara’s music, particularly heard in her honest lyricism. Music has always been a major part in her life, but in her mid 20s she started to find her own unique voice through songwriting. It was there that she was able to draw from her own life experiences and put it into her music with themes of love, race and personal growth. Her music is a beautiful combination of Nina Simone’s storytelling, D’Angelo’s soulfulness and the purity and rawness of Janis Joplin.
