KEiiNO

KEiiNO’s unique combination of dancepop, folk and joik has reached many corners of the world and brought the Sami culture to the attention of new audiences. We look forward to welcoming them to Kongsberg Jazz Festival!

KEiiNO’s participation in the 2019 Eurovision final brought them to the world’s attention, but they are far from a one-hit wonder. The band’s album OKTA (2020) was highly acclaimed both in Norway and abroad. In Norway they have topped the charts, been streamed to double platinum level, been nominated for a Spellemann prize for “song of the year” and won two prizes in the Sami Music Awards. Since Eurovision, they’ve released seven singles which together have been streamed over 45 million times, and produced three music videos. They have also toured Norway, Europe and Australia.

Eurovision in 2019 brought them to the attention of the UN, who appointed them ambassadors for the International Year of Indigenous Languages. This made it all the more important for KEiiNO to collaborate with indigenous artists on the album – among them Australian ARIA-winners Electric Fields, the Haka band Te Hau Tahiti, Native American rapper Drezus and Canadian throat singer Charlotte Qamainq.

Prior to joining KEiiNo, Alexandra Rotan performed as live vocalist with world-famous DJ Alan Walker. Fred Buljo toured with Sami rap duo Duolva Douttar, while Tom Hugo had a solo career in Norway and Germany and wrote hit songs for K-pop bands EXO and SHiNee.

One of the band’s core values is acceptance of difference, and this has been a central theme of their song texts right from the start. In an ever more polarized world, they want to celebrate diversity – and wish for everyone to feel free.
Their concert in Gamle Norge is not to be missed!
