Gaup was an early part of the rock group "Ivnniguinn", which, among other things, created arrangements of poems by Ailo Gaup, whose work, the musical Våre vidder II, was presented at the Kautokeino Theater and at cultural festivals in Nord-Norge. This piqued an interest in theater, which led to the establishment of Beaivváš Sámi Theatre, which he has been part of since 1983.

He has also had smaller roles in the Norwegian film The Brothers Dal and the Legend of Atlantis (1994), and also contributed to such musical publications as Jan Garbarek's I Took Up the Runes (1990). Together with Nils-Aslak Valkeapää, he released Sápmi lottážan (1993). Since 1993, he has been part of accordionist Gabriel Fliflet's group Fri Flyt, who has toured the country together with Knut Reiersrud performing the jazzjoik Saman i gaman. One of his joiks features in the German book Johan Turi. Ein Bühnenstück mit einem Joik von Áilloš by Harald Gaski and Gunnar H. Gjengset (Samica, 2019 ISBN 978-3-9816835-4-7).

He has performed "Jasat" with the Sami theater in Kiruna and the Southern Sámi Theater. Gaup received the Nordlys award in 2003, and participated in the Nordlys Festival in 2004 with Solveig Kringlebotn. Together with Kristin Mellem, he released Jeđđehus (2004), which was nominated for the Edvard award in (2005). His newest album includes the musicians Svein Schultz, Kenneth Ekornes, and Stein Austrud.
