Children of the world, inspired by the many places they can call home, it’s little wonder Karpe has grown to become one of the biggest musical acts in Norway. Magdi Omar Ytreeide Abdelmaguid has Egyptian and Norwegian roots, and Chirag Rashmikant Patel – who is of Indian origin – met at high school in Oslo as in 1998, when they were both 14 years old. Two years later they formed Karpe, and there’s virtually nowhere in Norway the duo hasn’t played sold out shows since then. This summer they’ll be taking their film loop and EP /Omar Sheriff/ to Lollapalooza Stockholm!
