      Maya Karen (she/her) is a pianist, vocalist, and composer hailing from Philadelphia, PA. She aims to make art that is compassionate and riotous, that smashes expectation and invents new ways of being together. Maya is currently studying Music and African American Studies at Princeton University, where she has been mentored by Kris Davis, Rudresh Mahanthappa, and Angelica Sanchez.

      Maya Karen is inspired by the universe-shifting generated by Black queer feminist thought. She feels creatively nourished by the work of radical artists and thinkers like Audre Lorde, Geri Allen, Saidiya Hartman, Angela Davis, Thelonious Monk, and Nicole Mitchell. Maya hopes to create social and musical systems that give voice to BIPOC/queer women and folks of marginalized genders and the imaginative beauty they possess. In this intention, she feels energized by her time spent collaborating with the inaugural cohort of Mutual Mentorship for Musicians, a working group of artists of underrepresented gender identities created by Jen Shyu and Sara Serpa. She has performed at venues like National Sawdust, Roulette Intermedium, and Smalls Jazz Club and has played in the Vermont Jazz Center Solo Jazz Piano Festival and the Philadelphia Jazz and Soul Festival with Marshall Alle.
