Farao

Pop

Farao is the pseudonym of London based, Norwegian singer Kari Jahnsen. To realise that she is different than most other songwriters, you only need to visit her homepage, where you’ll find a free download of her stunning cover version of „Go With The Flow“ by Queens Of The Stone Age. Accompanied by an acoustic guitar only, Jahnsen turns this song into a touching ballad. Of course her own songs are pretty special too. Her Singer-Songwriter-Pop flirts with Folk just as much as it does with electronic Ambient-Sounds. To record her first EP, Farao got some help by an expert: Mike Lindsay from British experimental Folk band Tunng. Acclaimed blog Line Of The Best Fit recently named her as on of the ten singers and bands leading the female-fronted Nordic music revolution.
