Farao is the musical moniker of Kari Jahnsen, a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Berlin by-way-of Norway. Blending minimalist beats and swirling synths with a zither and chimes, Farao’s disco-inspired sound is both familiar and alien, and wholly enticing. Paired with Jahnsen’s vocals, the songs head into a lush pop territory that’s super satisfying. She stopped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn for this flawless session.
Pure-O is available now from Western Vinyl.
