Biography

MEGAFON – the scandinavian elektro gypsies

Marte Schau (N) and Mikael Fleron (DK) , making spicy world elektro punk with flavours from many ”kitchens”.

An intense mixture of nordic light, balkan heat and oriental moods.
Stirred, fried, played and produced in their own kitchen, idyllically located in the Danish countryside.

Martes spellbinding vocal, completely familiar with the technique of Balkan traditional singing is combined with nordic sound, accompanied by fierce beats and Mikaels springy saxophone.

Live, they bring along monster bass and highly groovy drums.

Touring Scandinavia, their audience is growing fast, knowing they'll have a party every time !
