Leopold I. is the witty rhyme-spitter from Gornja Radgona, whose lyrics portray the hardships of the small man. He unveils the curtains hung over fluorescent facades of picket-fenced houses in the country and spies after what seemingly perfect families shovel onto their plates after Sunday mass. He’s supported by the razor-sharp instruments of Drügi, a band of battle-hardened musicians.

Tekochee Kru, the Maribor rap elders Emkej, Mito, Sniki, Luga, Šuljo, Staš, and Gersh, are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their Kru, their memories, stories, concerts, hits, records, videos, and everything that is part of the mosaic that many deem to be simply – legendary.

After three Tekochee albums, numerous solo projects by Emkej, Mito, and Šuljo, and after the many miles Kru members have walked on their diverse career journeys, the 20th anniversary is just the reason for the legendary crew need to come together again at the equally legendary Festival Lent in their home town, to celebrate together with all generations that have identified at any point in time with Tekochee classics.

Alyona alyona's live career started in 2019, though she makes hip-hop music for more than 10 years. Her debut video Ribki became a viral hit in Ukraine after its release in October 2018.  The young  kindergarten teacher from a small town near Kyiv became the overnight hip-hop sensation.

alyona alyona raps in her native language Ukrainian. And the way her words flow, hiss, roll, groove, and rush out? In a word: wow. Massive, dynamic drive put to dark, pumping beats. Alyona alyona is already a role model in Ukraine. Her videos, in which she proudly dances as the queen of the street in front of the housing projects of her hometown Baryshivka, or stages herself as a fairytale matriarch in a dystopian world, have millions of viewers. 

alyona alyona does without bling and pomp. In her songs, she prefers to talk about images of women beyond the usual beauty clichés (Ribki) or young adults who bemoan the situation in Ukraine and leave the country (Salischaju swij dim). She’s a pop artist who’s grounded, having worked at the supermarket checkout and as a make-up saleswoman before becoming an educator and studying psychology. Now she no longer delivers her message - informative and often humorous - as a preschool teacher, but as a  powerful rap performer.
