About Carenga

Carenga is a story of love. I created the music app I wish I had had while my mom was still alive. During the last two years of her life, my mom’s main way of communicating became music. I have fond memories of her singing old songs from her youth.

When I looked for other songs to expand her repertoire, I found myself overwhelmed by the choices and the lack of a simple tool to search for music from her younger years. I also wished for easily readable lyrics that we could both follow together. And when she would reminisce as she often did, I fancied being able to flip through albums of photos to further enhance her memories. Wouldn’t it be great if I could just go to one place for everything?

My day job is as a social worker with older folks with memory loss, and their families. With them also, I have witnessed the combined power of familiar music and social interaction, many, many times over. And I have taken what I have learned from those encounters to develop Carenga.

I invite you to discover the joy of Carenga now.
