2021 was the year when all of Denmark looked up to Tobias Rahim.
The Danish-Kurdish singer is over two metres tall, and he and Andreas Odbjerg have written the perhaps self-referencing song ”Stor mand” (‘big man’) which was a huge hit in Denmark in 2021. ”Mucki Bar” is the way onwards into 2022 – a smash hit from Rahim – a tune with ambitions as grand as its predecessor.
Tobias Rahim made a name for himself one year earlier when he released his solo debut, National romantik 2021, which includes the hit single ”Jesus” (a self-proclaimed sociocritical country song). He has also penned the popular tunes ”Op a væggen” (‘up against the wall’) and ”Costa Del Sol til København”.
The 32-year-old artist toys with earnest feelings and boundary-pushing lyrics with a provocative expression. He operates in a borderline territory where it’s perfectly normal to sing about both sex and politics.
Tobias Rahim had a close encounter with the sensual music of reggaeton when he lived in Colombia for a couple of years. Back in Denmark, he lived out the music as half of the reggaeton duo Camilo & Grande.
In other words, Tobias Rahim has been all over the place. So, it makes sense that you have come across – and looked up to – him. Now, you soon have to look towards the stage at Roskilde Festival when this ‘big man’ and wonderful pop artist unleashes his music live.
