Karim Ouellet is a Canadian pop singer-songwriter; his music is folk-pop, with reggae and African music influences. All these different influences blend into a unique and fun sound. Originally from Senegal, he was adopted by Canadian diplomats and lived in France, Rwanda and Tunisia before returning to Quebec City, Canada. His album Fox won the Juno Award for Francophone Album of the Year in 2014. He has toured around in Canada and France, and is particularly popular in Mexico.
