Safri Duo is a Danish electronic percussion duo composed of Uffe Savery and Morten Friis.

Initially classically oriented, by 1999 they were discovered by a label executive working on classical music. After being signed, a track mixing both tribal sound and modern electronica was set to be released in 2000.
The result was the popular “Played-A-Live (The Bongo Song)”, that became one of the most popular songs in Europe in 2001. The single and subsequent album, Episode II each sold one million units worldwide, making Safri Duo the most internationally successful Danish act since Aqua.
