Kelly Rose and Stuntman5 first crossed paths at an open-mic session in the streets of Nantes, Combining energy and flow, she was mercilessly mixing playful English and Camerounian vocab with Parisian swag. They begin a collaboration the same evening and were soon joined by FotonDanger to form the puk rap trio, Uzi Freyja.
Kelly Rose grew up in a family of musicians, steeped in the culture of Gospel and Soul Music (James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Nina Simone...). As a teen, Hip-Hop was a vibrant source of inspiration, artists like Eminem, Queen Latifah or Nicki Minaj provided motivation and reinforced her desire to sing and rap. From freestyles in her bedroom to karaoke with friends, it wasn't until she'd taken part in a music workshop in high school, that she expressed herself fully, for the first time. Since then, she's immersed herself in various projects, groups, movements and environments with musicians, artists, dancers, painters and singers ...
Uzi Freyja's music is a blend of confrontational, sensual vocals, and hard-hitting electronic production, influenced by artists like Death grips or Ho99o9, among others. UZI FREYJA is a French formation established in 2019, comprised of vocalist-songwriter Kelly Rose, musicians/producers Stuntman5 and FotonDanger.
Das Konzert findet im Rahmen des Förderprojekts »c/o pop 2023 musichubgermany« statt und wird durch die Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH mit Projektmitteln der Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien gefördert.
