Home / Biography / Farao


A singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist — with an focus on the second option — Farao paints hypnotic electronic-acoustic soundscapes that are in once rooted in approachable folk, off-kilter orchestral rock and roll, and spaced-out electronica, using the underlying firmness of a surprise brewing. Farao may be the overall performance alias of Kari Jahnsen (Hella Better Dancer, Anna Slim & the Orchids), who was simply born and elevated in rural Valdres, Norway. She relocated to Oslo before composing and documenting her eponymous debut EP in Reykjavik, Iceland. Also partially documented in London, Britain with Mike Lindsay of experimental acidity folk combo Tunng, the indie folk/digital Farao EP was released via Something Nothing at all Information in 2014. With Jahnsen recently working out of London and Berlin, Farao’s debut full-length, Til It’s All Overlooked, premiered in Sept 2015 on Arts & Crafts in THE UNITED STATES and REGULAR Hobby in European countries. Made by Lindsay and combined by Grammy champion Andrew Scheps (Adele, Female Gaga, Hozier), it provided a far more percussive, indie rock and roll audio still governed by ethereal vocals, a different device palette, and a cloudy atmosphere.
