On April 27 the Palladium Riga concert hall will host one of Norway’s musical crown jewels – the self proclaimed electro-troupe Casiokids. The band employs old analogue, trashy keyboards and cheerful pop melodies in creating their funky tunes. Tickets available in all Biļešu Serviss sales points and March 14 special ticket price - LVL 9, regular ticket price - LVL 12.

From the rocky Nordic cities of Bergen and Stavanger, Casiokids are one of Norway’s most successful indie-pop bands to date. With tunes often sung in their native language and influenced by afro-beat, techno and out-and-out pop, the bands experimental sounds are often compared to the likes of Röyksopp, Efterklang and Sigur Ros. In their own words, Casiokids are „trying to make music that is somewhere between ABBA, Technotronic and Whigfield, yet failing”.

Since their creation in 2005, Casiokids have won A-HA’s Best Norwegian band contest, released the first ever Norwegian language single - "Grønt lys i alle ledd / Togens hule" in the UK and played numerous renowned festivals and venues in Europe and North America, including Roskilde Festival (Denmark) CMJ Music Marathon (New York City), The Great Escape Festival (Brighton, UK), and others. Casiokids were described by NME Magazine as "the best thing to come out of Norway since black metal."

Casiokids are Ketil Kinden Endresen, Fredrik Øgreid Vogsborg, Omar Emanuel Johnsen and Kjetil Bjøreid Aabø.
