ANKAH

The danish soul singer ANKAH released her first EP, ‘Haze’, May 29th this year. The recordings were the culmination of a two year long musical journey which had brought her and her music to SPOT Festival, Aarhus Musik Festival, VEGA and Scandinavian Soul Music Awards in Stockholm this february as the winner in the “Best Newcomer” category.

On ‘Haze’ you’re invited into a steamy atmosphere that's thick with soul and R&B vibes and you’re lead through shifting moods by laidback beats inspired by hiphop music. There’s a rawness to the recordings that lays bare the instrumental honesty of a tight playing ensemble, which in most modern R&B is usually lost in a polished production.

Behind the pseudonym ANKAH stands 21-year old Anna Kathrine who lives in Aarhus.

"The most important thing to me is to convey a musical expression that is honest. Authenticity has been the most significant consideration on the way to this release,” she tells about her debut EP.

Along with cool timing Anna Kathrine’s powerful but equally tender vocals create a very personal experience. From baking heat over into melancholic reflection and through the more spirited vibes, her voice ties everything together in an honest story of love for the music.
