Norwegian rap duo Karpe consists of audiovisual artists Chirag Rashmikant Patel and Magdi Omar Ytreeide Abdelmaguid. Since their debut release Glasskår EP (2004), they have risen to become the biggest rap artists, if not the biggest band, in Norway – always raising the bar when it comes to audiovisual concepts, productions and releases. They have produced hit after hit, received a bunch of awards and made both headlines and history with their spectacular live shows and ambitious ideas.
THE MONKEY AND THE MOUTH
A fusion of concert and fiction that together constitutes a "never before seen" hybrid of music video/live-concert/fiction film.
Karpe released their first studio album, Rett fra hjertet in 2006 before Fire Vegger dropped two years later – both great commercial successes. Aldri solgt en løgn (2010) became their third and biggest album topping the Norwegian charts and earning them awards and recognition.
In 2012 they made waves once again, with the album Kors på halsen, Ti kniver i hjertet, Mor og Far i døden. Following the successful release they became the first Norwegian hiphop act ever, to sell out Oslo Spektrum Arena – one of the largest venues in the Norwegian capital.
