Intense club night with Scandinavia's hottest rapper!

She was the first rapper ever who was named the "Artist of the Year" during "Grammisgallaen" in 2016, and has also won several other awards. In 2015 she performed in six different countries and visited Paris and New York among many other cities. She has played at the SxSW in the US, the film festival in Mexico, the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and Øya og Slottsfjell here in Norway. In March 2016 the album "Naturkog raft" was released and which was hailed by critics and audiences alike.

Silvana Imam has Lithuanian mother and Syrian father and came to Sweden with her older sister when she was four years old. She has carved out her own particular place in public. Her lyrics are confrontational, political and progressive, and the music invites both party lovers and earnest audiences. 

It is Silvana Imam's time now. Even more than ever before. There is a movement around her, a movement that is far more than just rap. It is found in the visual expression, the emotional weight of the lyrics, in consciousness, and in the music. When you see Silvana Imam it is your battles, your background and your love you meet. 

Silvana Imam is your voice, your clenched fists. Your feet that take you forward, sideways and back. And you are Silvana, her voice is yours.
