Hip-hop sensation from Ukraine.
Story of alyona alyona is a story of a young kindergarten teacher from a village on the outskirts of Kiev who became an overnight hip-hop sensation.
She raps in her mother tongue Ukrainian and hits the bull’s eye with her lyrics. The former educator is about to become a cult. Her debut album “Ribki” (“Fischlein”, a synonym for young women) became a viral hit in Ukraine after its release in October 2018. She raps humorously about what it’s like to be the “thickest fish” – and not to fit into the narrow ideal of beauty. “Salischaju swij dim” (“I leave my house”) is an unofficial anthem for the many Ukrainians who want to move away from their ancestral life into a better future – whether to the EU, America or the capital Kiev. There is something about Alyona Alyona that goes beyond her undoubtedly impressive looks, her confident attitude, her captivating flow, her lyrical ability, her sound quality or her alter ego in kindergarten. Her success can simply amount to an innate sense of authenticity that gives her hip-hop personality the street credibility the genre thrives on.
