IRAH is the brain-child of Copenhagen-based musicians Stine Grøn (vocals) and Adi Zukanović (keyboards). They find creative power in their spiritual awareness and have a truly unique ability to create feelings of unity with their growing audience as well as a sense of being part of something bigger.

Adi was born in Sarajevo in Bosnia but fled with his family as a 4 year old to Denmark when the war broke out. At the refugee center Adi found a small keyboard in the playroom and found that playing music opened a whole new world of calmness for him. Years later Adi is one of the most sought after piano and keyboard players in Denmark and also an arranger for some of the most celebrated Danish symphony orchestras.

Since childhood Stine has felt a pull towards otherworldly ideas and stories, and early on she combined this with her music. Singing and composing from an early stage in her life opened up her creative universe. Her voice has evolved into a seemingly effortless expression that combines improvisational techniques with her deep spirituality. When not playing with IRAH, Stine sings for the sick and dying at hospices and for old people at care centers offering them peace of mind.

In 2016 IRAH released a mini-album entitled Into Dimensions on Tambourhinoceros (Efterklang, Palace Winter, Pardans) to wide critical acclaim and quickly established themselves as a household name in their native Denmark while enjoying an increasing international attention from tastemakers like BBC Radio 6 Music, KCRW, The Line of Best Fit, Hype Machine, The405, and many more. Not even two years into their career as recording artists IRAH has already performed at international festivals like Roskilde Festival, Sziget Festival, By:Larm, Eurosonic, and headlined shows throughout Denmark as well as London.
