Yes, it is possible. And because Amarok is available in the Universe, one of the default repositories, just make sure you have an up to date system:

$ sudo apt-get update

And install Amarok:

$ sudo apt-get install amarok

If this does not work, install it from the kubuntu backports repo:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install amarok
