КУКЛА - Katarina

КУКЛА is the voice of the generation – the voice of the underprivileged millenials in the cultural industry, especially when coming from the migrant background. Her sensibility is very contemporary and creative.
Eclectic mixture of influences, stretching from ethno music through turbofolk to avant-pop and electronic pop, reflects cultural nomadism at the time of enormous flows of information coming together at places once thought to be inconceivable.
Many artists face an unpredictable situation with the help of ironic distance and precarious relations towards various packs, but Kukla – self-proclaimed Slavic gangsta-geisha pop artist – seems to be successfully integrating this mixture and holding it firmly together.
The songs on her album called Katarina (her real name) are lyrical, intimate and slow paced, yet interrupted by sudden changes of styles, intrusions of ethno music pieces, effects and dramatic structure. Kukla does not stand out from pop aesthetics, nor does she want to subvert it from the inside.
