Farao on UK tour

Farao is the pseudonym of London based, Norwegian artist Kari Jahnsen. March, April and May takes her bittersweet melancholy across the UK.

Norwegian songstress Farao first appeared in January with a free download of haunting track ‘Forces’. Her fragile and otherworldly tone instantly connected with the media, picking up tastemaker support from The Line Of Best Fit’s editor-in-chief, Rich Thane and radio support as Lauren Laverne’s ‘MPFree track of the day’ on her BBC 6music show.

Farao has just recorded her debut EP in Iceland with Mike Lindsay from experimental folk group Tunng. The four track record is set for release in the Autumn, but is preceded by a debut digital single ‘Skin’ set for release on April 22nd.

A busy touring schedule is on the cards, including appearances at this year’s The Great Escape and Secret Garden Party festivals, as well as tour dates across UK/EU with Moddi and Paper Aeroplanes.
