What kind of music would emerge if you combined a pair of renowned Danish electronic producers with two of the most exciting jazz musicians around?
This was the question in the minds of the Copenhagen Strøm Festival curators. The answer arrived in the form of electronic pioneers Rumpistol and Spejderrobot—two prominent characters with a reputation well beyond their home countries—along with guitarist Niclas Knudsen and drummer Emil de Waal. The four were brought together onstage, and KALAHA was born.
From the spontaneous and infectious magic of their first show came their critically acclaimed debut album “Hahaha”, the sound taking its inspiration in equal parts from West-African funk, electro rave and jazz improvisation, standing up as best possible
blending of musical worlds—highly energetic and expressive, triggering the listener to dance with the head just as much as the heart.

“KALAHA transport fans into another world” -
All their releases have proved to be captivating, epitomized by their distinctive sound design as well as the outstanding instrumental contributions.
It comes as no surprise that their albums are not only sought among vinyl connoisseurs, but have also brought KALAHA a Danish Music Award (2017) as well as placements on playlists around the world.
DJ and BBC host Gilles Peterson has said the following about the album ”Masala”:
"Brilliant album. Very tropical again! You can hear that African lo-fi influence on the whole album"
