Omar Sheriff – Norway’s biggest sensation comes to Budapest with a spectacular show
Norway’s biggest sensation, the Karpe rap duo, will come to Budapest with their spectacular show Omar Sheriff, featuring dancers from Quickstyle, on 24 May 2023. Omar Sheriff is a universe of its own, with songs mixing Norwegian, Arabic, Quiarati and English, and all the performers are descendants of immigrants to Norway, a truly multicultural project. They have filled the Oslo arena ten times in a month, setting a new record, and will take Europe by storm in the spring.
Norwegian rap duo Karpe consists of audiovisual artists Chirag Rashmikant Patel and Magdi Omar Ytreeide Abdelmaguid. They are the biggest act 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.
In 2022 they released their latest musical project, Omar Sheriff. A universe that is packed full of tributes and nods to their background (Chirag being of Indian -and Magdi being of Egyptian origin). It is present sonically, in references, in lyrics and in all the visual content. They mix Norwegian with Arabic, Gujarati and English in a way no one has done before them.
Following the critically acclaimed release, they once again made concert history when they teamed up with Quickstyle – the legendary global dance crew, that went viral with their famous wedding show earlier this year, for their most spectacular show yet. A record breaking residency in Oslo Spektrum Arena – ten shows in one month, 111 000 tickets sold (an all time record in the arena).
The band and the crew are both children of a generation of immigrants and refugees from all over the world, who fled to Norway to create a home. Now, their next generation have made «Omar Sheriff» together – a multi-cultural project who unites and includes. And most definitely entertains. Together they create an infectious and truly unique energy, and now they are taking on Europe.
