Music in my life

My name is Karol Lisseth Gamboa Pallares. I am from Colombia, a beautiful country recognized for its multiculturalism and friendly people.

Since childhood I have had connection with art. My first experience with art was through dance. Before singing, I practised dance. I started to participate in Colombian folk dance groups since I was 4 years old.

However, I could not continue my dance practice, the hobby that I loved. The doctors found a degenerative problem in my right knee, and had to operate. As a result of this, at 18, I discovered that I had a talent: I can sing. So I just swapped my dance with singing!

I began to venture into the world of singing in a musical project called SINFONORTE. There I took my first singing lessons. I was a member of various groups in my city such as BOCAQUIUSA choir and SINFONORTE choir.

At the age 19, I joined the musical band at my university, playing folk music from Colombia such as cumbias, bambucos, merengue as well as traditional songs.

I really enjoy singing!

In 2012, I was the vocalist of a local pop rock band from my town called B-sides. I have good memories of working with this group, of which I was a member for over 4 years. Also I participated in other typical Latin American bands, singing Latin music such as merengue and salsa.

In 2016, I was one of the vocalists in a traditional drum tamboras group of the Corporación Universitaria Minuto de Dios. I participated in many different festivals singing representative songs of my country. I love Colombian folklore as it is rhythmic and it invites you to dance and enjoy the sound of the drums.


In my country, I have also had the opportunity to work as a singing teacher with children, youth and adults. It is a lot of fun for me to be able to share my knowledge with other people.

Today I am in Australia, and I want to take the opportunity to share the music of my home country. CCEB, the college that I’m studying at, gave me a chance to pursue my hobby by letting me run singing classes for our students. I’m super excited!
