DJ at “Turning Japanese”

With Umeå Autumn Light Festival (Umeå Höstljus) finished, the next event Kari is working on will be “Turning Japanese” which she is arranging and DJing at.

Now it’s time to take a trip to Japan! We will decorate Pipes of Scotland in a Japanese spirit and will play everything from traditional Japanese music to Visual Kei and bubblegum pop, some anime OP / ED can probably also pop in now and then!
We encourage people to come “in costume”, we would love to see you in kimonos, Lolita, Visual Kei styles, or anything that flirts with Japan.

During the evening we also have a “costume contest” and the one that looks coolest will get a nice little present which is sponsored by Tehörnan! The only rules is that you will look “Japanese” in honor to this evening!

You are all welcome! (Free entrance. Age: 18 years)

DJs will be Kari Berg and Jimmy T.

You can find the event at Facebook here.

Umeå Autumn Light Festival

During the past month Kari has been working with the opening ceremony for Umeå Autumn Light Festival. The ceremony will take place on November 18th at Rådhusparken and is a spectacle of lights. The theme this year is “Dreams” and this has influenced things like a six-meter long pipe-smoking caterpillar, pyro-technicians, “Wonderland” creatures, a fake attempt at mass hypnosis, dance groups and much more! And also, on a 20 meter long table we will also have the city’s largest teaparty!

Kari extra in the film “Burning Hearts”

Today Kari filmed a scene, where she is an extra in the film “Burning Hearts”. It’s “A Film About Love and Passion” and this is what producer Jonas Overton says about it:
Small time criminal petty thief J is from the Southern Swedish city of Malmö. He dreams of a new life abroad but lacks the money to achieve that. He sees his chance in a drug deal, then travels to Stockholm to complete the transaction with the treacherous crime boss Dragan. The deal goes sour and completely wrong. J then finds himself in the capitol city with his bankroll… knowing instantly who to turn to for help, the unforgettable Josephine, a former lover and full time entertainment journalist.

Kari stars in Di Leva music video

Kari recently got the leading part in the music video “Öppnar mitt hjärta” by Thomas DiLeva and it’s now released. DiLeva says: “Open My Heart” is about when you’re so in love that you barely even remember your own name, but other people warn you and wants you to come back to earth. It can make you not really dare to be so in love who you really are, but then you have to open your heart and allow yourselves to feel all the emotions – that’s what the song is about.
