    Khoma is yet another bastard child of Umeå's raging music scene. Founded in 2002, the members have known each other for years- sharing dreams, rehearsal rooms, vans and a musical kindship that has survived the birth and death of a thousand bands.
    Anything but a conventional band, Khoma is a few friends sharing a musical and political vision. Khoma is what won't fit the frame. A crashing wave of angst, desperation, anger and beautiful love.

    Khoma has two faces. One that writes, rehearses, and records songs, and another that gathers to play live. The core of Khoma is always static vocalist Jan Jämte, guitarist Johannes Persson, and Fredrik Kihlberg on guitar/piano but the surrounding band members are a rolling collective of musicians.

    "Khoma is a breathing space where different styles fuse", says Jan "We have a vision of creating heavy music that reflects more feelings than just sheer aggression. Sometimes whispering can be more powerful than screaming."

    Despite starting as a side project originally, a few months in things were beginning to take off for the band. A limited 1000-disc run of debut album Tsunami was released and quickly sold out. It was reprinted and quickly sold out again.

    Without having signed a record deal, Khoma started to work on the follow-up to Tsunami. In creating their most recent music, the band have broadened their perspective and introduced new elements; most notably cello and piano. "I dont think that we have any limitations when it comes to do's and donts in our songs", comments Jan. "We just dont think about music in that way. Too many bands are stuck, sounding like something straight out of a production line. Thats not why we play music. Khoma is still a way of expressing diversity, not limiting us to just anger, depression or happiness. Were diverse as people. We want to be free. Our music should incorporate all of that.

    For us its all about freedom and quality of life", says Jan. "Khoma is not something that weve started to make it, to sell thousands of records or to become icons. We just want to write and play this music and in order for us to do that we have to feel free, both personally and creatively. The plan is still the same. It hasnt changed."
