Okapii is a danish afripop/soul duo from Copenhagen Denmark consisting of Mads Oustrup (production, mixing, mastering) and Alex Rita (vocals, lyrics, production).
Mads and Alex met through a mutual friend, and realized they had musical chemistry instantly! Okapii was founded, and immediately they began working on an album together.
Their first release was "Don't Mind The Rain" in late 2012 with support from friends and the independent Music Label GreenShades Music. In Feb. 28 Okapii released their first Official Video to 'Don't Mind The Rain' which was filmed in the exotic location of Barbados whilst visiting Alexs' family.
Mads has worked on several projects as a sound engineer including; Quadrons first album, and mixing on Rhye's album. Mads has also lived in Ghana for one year working with different musicians from Ghana and Mali.
Most of the songs from Okapiis forthcoming album has emanated from small pieces and sketches Mads recorded during his stay in Ghana.
