Biography[edit]

Karpa was born in a small city of Dobromyl near the Polish-Soviet border. She was born in a musical family where her grandmother once sang in a choir, while father was a professional musician. When Karpa was five parents bought her a piano and later she enrolled into a music school.

She started to sing in a public choir "Pysanka" and later became a solo singer for the vocal-instrumental ensemble "Halytska perlyna" (Halych Perl) headed by Lesya Salistra.

Karpa finished her school with a gold medal and has two higher education diplomas: Lviv Medical University (former medical campus of Lviv University) and the English Philology of Lviv Polytechnic. During her studies in universities Karpa was a solo singer for a medical jazz band "Medicus".

She participated in numerous Ukrainian festivals. Her first the most successful hit was a song "Kalyna - ne verba".[1]

Along her singing career, Karpa also is an anchor lady for few TV-programs such as "Ekstremalnyi weekend" (NTA) and "Vidkryi sebe" (Television and Radio company "Lyuks"). Together with her producer Yaroslav Stepanyk she found her own producing center "KARPARATION" (until 2001 "Nika").
