  • Inka Upendo


We first heard Inka's music in late 2018 and immediately headed down to Falmouth to meet her; we've been working together since. We love the unique colours and textures she creates as a producer and songwriter, pairing intertwined, experimental percussion with found sounds, synthesizers and ethereal vocals. Originally from Helsinki, Inka now splits her time between Falmouth and Finland.


In 2019 we released Inka's first EP, Samsara, which contrasts dark and light elements of production, exploring themes such as feelings of inadequacy, the absurdity of love and the ubiquity of capitalism. Following the EP release, Inka was a BBC Radio 1 Next Wave artist on The Indie Show with Jack Saunders and has been played on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Music Introducing Devon & Cornwall.


Inka has performed at Reading & Leeds Festivals on the BBC Introducing Stages as well as shows in London, Falmouth, Winchester and at the festival Kontula Electronic in Finland.
