Papaya History

Papaya was formed in 1986 by Rikke Forchhammer with the mission to bring the musical treasure of Africa – and the entailing stories – into the hearts and the homes of the Danish and European people. 

Through the years of Papaya´s history, the songs have increasingly been focused at the music of South Africa, and the group has now done 5 tours to South Africa. Papaya has shared quality time with the people that are forming South Africa of Today and along the years, countless choirs, singers and musical artists of this proud nation have generously shared their songs with us.
