Born in Zambia, Karen Mukupa stepped onto the danish music at a young age of
16 and founded the first female danish rap group, ’No name requested’, along side
her best friend, the late Natasja Saad, known as the Danish reggae dancehall queen.
Today 3 albums later, she is now releasing her forth solo album. Bringing her african
roots and mixing it, into western mainstream music. She sings in both Swahili and
english and blends it with elements of Hiphop, soul and reggae.
Her passion is to keep the music alive and that comes across clearly on stage, where
her performance is always engaging. One critic wrote, ” Mukupas delivery was tight
In collaboration with her band and forth coming album ”Human”, she has created
a sound, on and of stage, for all lovers of urban music, with strong influences from
Africa. An expression, which keeps her music unique.
