Following an intense year with concerts in Pakistan and Denmark, HUN SOLO are about to embark on their next adventure – this time to the Faroe Islands. As always, they bring three fantastic guests along with them, who together with the HUN SOLO hosts will perform a short solo concert each. Each artist enters the stage on her own and the audience can expect at truly special evening, where they will experience five very different and cool female artists and their music.
Iris Gold grew up in Freetown Christiania in Copenhagen, Denmark. The songstress had a childhood soundtrack full of songs by the likes of Jefferson Airplane, The Doors and The Mamas & The Papas.
Raised in these surroundings, Iris Gold quickly developed an independent streak – something she has never lost. The Danish/English/Jamaican singer moved to London and she quickly became a part of the music scene. She has performed together with big acts like Miguel, Blur, Taylor Swift and Robbie Williams.
Iris Gold is a true star in the making, and she has a golden recipe. Her songs fuse flower power with hip-hop beats, soulful vocals and a pop approach with choruses that easily get stuck in your ear. She calls it “music that makes people smile”. Try on “Steve McQueen” or “All I Really Know” for size and you’ll know what we’re on about. Come on closer to Iris Gold’s curly locks, her soulful voice and her catchy music. She’s going places!
Great Svabo Bech
The Faroese singer, songwriter and violinist Greta Svabo Bech is the first guest that we present. With her clear voice and dreamy musical universe Greta has written music for world famous artists such as Cher and received a Grammy Awards nomination for her work with Deadmau5. She has been releasing music in her own name since 2013, and in 2014 she was awarded a Faroese Music Award for “Best female singer”. We are very much looking forward to hearing her unfold her ethereal sound under HUN SOLO’s diamond.
Nana Jacobi has a reputation for delivering goose-bump inducing live performances. Her third album Expander from 2015 with melodic, filmic and sensual pop generated headlines lige “A brave voice” and “Inspired outsider close to the mainstream”.

Gurli Octavia has with her New-Folk music made an instant mark on the Nordic music scene.. She spent the first year of her life on the road in a horse-pulled circus wagon. She grew up in a world of jugglers, and was raised in a place between dreams and reality.
Gurli Octavia har, despite of the fact that she is realtively unknown in her home country, had her single "Winter Arrived" stramed over 400.000 times on Spotify.
