Alyona Alyona, Maria Popov

A tale of Ukrainian rap



Alyona Alyona has become an icon dressed in streetwear for rap fans and Ukrainians alike. The former kindergarten teacher rose to fame as a talented rapper not long before Russia started the war on Ukraine. Since then, Alyona Alyona has not only been on a mission to become a famous rap artist, but also to raise both awareness and money desperately needed to help people affected by the war in her native country. At TINCON, the young artist will talk about her career, her upbringing as well as her anti-war activism and why she started to rap in Ukrainian.
The interview is going to be held in English.
