Biography

Kala-OK is a one-man band created by the multi-instrumentalist Kristian Mondrup. Prior to creating Kala-OK – which means Karaoke in Chinese – Kristian played drums in various bands in Denmark, e.g. Lars & the Hands of Light. In 2009, Kristian moved to China to learn Chinese and to explore music. The album Reminiscence of a Bodily Blues is the result of this journey into the landscape of music and the loneliness in China far away from his girlfriend and the musicians and friends in Copenhagen.
Returning from China in 2010, Kristian invited friends onboard the concept of Kala-OK; Treefight For Sunlight singer Christian Rohde Lindinger and Nicolai Koch who played with Oh No Ono and Choir of Young Believers both sing many of the songs on the album. Reminiscence of a Bodily Blues was released in April 2012.
