Charlie K is currently making an unusual impression on the world, performing in all sorts of venues (festivals, clubs, concerts, charity events…) and leaving his fans across the globe nothing less than overwhelmed and riveted.
His “magic hands” make people dance and shake to his original beats and rhythm, complementing the ever so popular genres of Techno, Tribal and Middle Eastern music. You would have to see it and hear it, to believe it!
Born in Edmonton, Alberta, raised in Montreal, Quebec, this young ambitious artist holds his Lebanese background and culture near and dear to his heart. Ever since the age of 5, Charlie has been tapping on everything and anything in sight, from pots and pans to his desk in school. At the age of 12, he visited Lebanon and was offered a Darbouka (drum) as a gift. Since his return, he has not let it out of his grasp. Thanks to his loving family, gathering almost every week, indulging in great feasts and sing-a-longs, Charlie was always asked to be the designated drummer.
At the age of 18, he introduced his talent to the nightclub scene in Montreal and since has grown to become a hometown celebrity, leaving all of his peers with something to talk about.
Recently, Charlie was part of Karl Wolf’s band, an international superstar, traveling all over the world and adding an undeniably special taste of rhythm, energy and hype to every show. While venturing as part of the band, he was also discovered for his talent in writing, producing, singing and rapping and has actually co-written a song called “Bite The Bullet” which was also chosen to be the title of Karl Wolf’s second solo album. Charlie has also had the opportunity to perform before artists such as Mary J Blidge, Ne-Yo, Dj Felli Fell, Tila Tequila, Nancy Ajram, Lumidee, Kelly Rowlans, Massari, Choclair and many more, and will surely be pursuing future endeavours with many of the above, thanks to the wonderful reviews received after every performance.
Currently, Charlie K is working on producing his own album, all the while still traveling and performing solo shows worldwide with his Darbouka. Just follow your ears to catch his performance near you!
