19.30: Sid Hart
With dreamy tunes, JEZ_EBEL has attracted worldwide attention ever since they first discovered Garage Band as a teenager. Their career started in the bedroom, where they published their first songs on Soundcloud and established the alter ego JEZ_EBEL. With eclectic expressions, a charismatic nature and a huge presence in the music, it's hard not to let JEZ_EBEL move you. After several releases and music videos, another EP is on the way this summer. We look forward to hearing old favorites and brand new material at Youngstorget, during Oslo Pride.
With roots in R&B and soul, OMVR has proved to be one of Norway's great voices. Universal has described him as a "songwriter in rapid development" and he has received brilliant feedback for performances at festivals such as Slottsfjell, Stavern, Skral, Øya, VG-lista and Oslo Pride. OMVR is not just a vocalist, he works to build himself a clear identity as a songwriter, and is currently working on new music in both English and Norwegian, with a planned launch in the winter of 2022.
The South Sudanese DJ and producer Turkana plays uncompromising and experimental African electronic music, hard dance, techno and underground music from the global south. She is one of the founders of ANTI-MASS, a Kampala-based DJ collective, which organizes LGBTQI + -friendly parties in Uganda and other continents. Turkana has performed at festivals such as CTM, Le Guess Who and Nyege Nyege. In June she is going on a European tour and the trip goes to Oslo World, Mela and Pride!
Since moving to Norway from Nicaragua in 2018, Sid Hart has collaborated with renowned Norwegian musicians, artists and video artists. He debuted with the experimental EP "Soul Design" in 2020 and is now preparing for the release of "Boys in Love", an EP that tells heartwarming stories from the teens, with productions influenced by music from growing up in the early 2000s. The songs have their roots in the singer / songwriter tradition, inspired by their mother Katia Cardenal, a highly acclaimed Central American folk musician. After concerts on stages such as Vill Vill Vest in Bergen, Oslo Pride and Musikkfest, Sid has impressed audiences with original songs in both English, Spanish and Norwegian. During the concert at Oslo Pride, the upcoming EP will be played live for the very first time, as always accompanied by brother Alex and sister Nina.
