Miss Tati, Festivalteltet, Ekstremsportveko

It turned out to be a massive show, even it was not many people made their way down to the festival tent for the first half of the concert. That didn’t stop this firework of an artist, who started her concert during the Kari Traa fashion show and continued into late hours. The Soul Princess from Bergen charmed her audience with a thrilling mixture of soul, hip-hop, funk and lots of love. It is almost impossible to not get in a good mood when watching Miss Tati on stage.
