Shari Vari is a Duo consisting of Helena Ratka and Sophia Kennedy.
Both are visual artists as well and after a joint exhibition about a fictional superstar they decided to make music together. In 2017 Shari
Vari released their debut EP “Life Should Be A Holiday” on Richard von der Schulenburg's imprint It's.
Sophia Kennedy's name might ring a bell to professional and unprofessional audience: The Baltimore born and Hamburg bred
luminary released her self titled debut record to quite some critical acclaim on DJ Koze's Pampa Records also in 2017.
It was voted amongst the 20 best electronic records of that year by Pitchfork and probably sold well — but I would easily trade that glory against the
fact so many teen girls spent their last pocket money on her CD or LP inspired by her odd pop, looking at music differently for the first time
in their lives. (I eye witnessed that because I work in a record shop and I solemnly swear I got all of them into a chat to get to this information).
Another pension sorted! The other half of Shari Vari – Helena Ratka – a brilliant DJ (under the name Ratkat) with that particular Golden Pudel stance, also
appears under the moniker qp/Spine Lab as an audiovisual project, releasing a tape on the Cosmic Cunt Clan in 2017. She also works on theatre music scores and film projects.
