Ravi Kuma is a hard-hitting electronic rap duo consisting of rapper Sharon Kumaraswamy and producer Aske Knudsen. They got together in 2016 and quickly attracted attention for their in-your-face music.
Industrial bass lines, marching beats and gimmicky samples add an exotic edge to their underground music which brings up tabooed and current topics – all shouted out through cheeky and explicit lyrics. If you haven’t heard it already, go listen to v. You’ll be jumping about in no time, wanting to be a princess yourself. It’s a middle finger to everything boring and trite.
The topics are served with a well-portioned self-deprecating humor and irony – but with a serious undertone.
Ravi Kuma is a quirky outfit and a big cannon of energy. Not least live (check out this live performance). They have been called everything from a tripping Nicki Minaj to a drunk M.I.A., but they are their very own entity.
