Hip-hop kings Karpe diem return to Romsdalsmuseet!

Karpe Diem, the uncrowned kings of Norwegian hip-hop, delivered a brilliant concert when attending Moldejazz 2010. Since then they have further strengthened their position, something both the critically acclaimed fourth album "Kors på halsen, ti kniver i hjertet, mor og far i døden" and last years spectacular closing concert at Øyafestivalen have contributed to. The group has earlier received Alarmprisen for their debut album "Rett fra hjertet" (2006) and won Spellemannsprisen for their majorly successful album "Fire vegger" (2008). In 2010 they achived, as the first hip-hop act, to with the most prestigious Spellemannspris "Årets Spellemann" after they had delivered yet another successful and well-received album with "Aldri solgt en løgn".

Chirag Patel and Magdi Yrreeide Abdelmaguid have, with their lyrics and their conscious relationship to building rhymes and "flow", shown a unique ability to captivate. Multi-national backgrounds also contribute to the band standing apart from others. It attracted much attention, stricly in a positive sense, when they, as hindu and muslim, performed the songs "Byduer i dur" and "Tusen tegninger" in Oslo Cathedral.
