Karolina created the band FUNSET in 2000 with musicians in Tel Aviv .

Funset released their first album, Ragga Pumpkin, in 2005. Though the album was self-released and promoted strictly through word of mouth and on the street, it received great critiques and sold thousands of copies to this day.".
Karolina won the equivalent of the ASCAP award, the "Acum" prize, for composition of the Funset Album.
She toured the country with her special Solo Sound System show. She also performed with The Black Eyed Peas and Lauryn Hill in their recent stops to Israel.
Karolina has recently embarked on an international career: a track from Funset album was licensed to Jazzanova’s German label compilation and her enchanting singing was included in several international Funk, Soul and even electronic releases. One of these tracks which she recorded with Kutiman, was warmly received by Fader Magazine’s musical editors, who called it “Mostly perfect for summer jamming purposes”.
