Kasiika – (pronounced Kas-ee-ka), is a British Asian Independent singer, songwriter and musician. One summer, she chose Music as a subject and taught herself how to play piano by listening to her musical pieces. She has stretched and honed her talent and learned to play many instruments including the guitar, ukulele and Indian classical flute all by ear. The stage name Kasiika is wordplay on her name Karthika with a French twist. Her tracks blend elements of Pop, R&B, UK Grime and Dance.
Kasiika’s debut EP “Better now” includes solo tracks and collaborations with UK artists Ayo Beatz and DJ Ironik. Her songs are fresh, musically adept and addictive. Her attitude “Unbreakable”, she wants you to be her “Friend”, invite you into her world “Just So You Know” everything is “Better Now”. She launched her EP to a packed Megaro Bar in Kings Cross, London playing live acoustic with a neon lit grand piano. Her most recent festival appearance was at the London Mela mainstage. She is supported by BBC Radio Asian Network DJs Ashanti Omkar and Bobby Friction. She was chosen as BBC introducing artist of the week and her title track Better Now is currently getting regular airplay at the BBC.
