Formed in Stjørdal, Norway in 2009, Ska-frika started as a 9-piece high school band playing in the style of ska and rock, inspired by their “forefathers” in Hopalong Knut.
Since then, the band has grown and been through many changes in lineup, but they have always kept their unique musical style combined with lyrics sung in their own dialect from the mid-Norwegian region. The band is known for their up-tempo music and energetic live performances. They have now played gigs all around Norway several times, and chances are they will make an appearance on a festival near you next summer. On July 16th 2017, Ska-frika presented their first EP since their new vocalist Ellen Sofie Steen joined the band in the fall of 2016.
