SAETA

Artist

The group SAETA was established in 1977 and it was at the time the only music group that combined organized improvisation with elements of experimental music taken from different scores and noted instructions for performance as well as elements of repetitive minimalist music and live performances or recorded performances of electroacoustic music of different genres. The group remains loyal to their calling to the present day. 

SAF Military Band

Artist

The Military Band of the Slovenian Armed Forces (The SAF Military Band) was formed in 1996 with the aim of performing military protocol-related tasks. It forms an intrinsic part of all Slovenian Armed Forces ceremonies, from events marking military unit anniversaries and oaths of enlistment to Slovenian state commemorations and transnational meetings. The Military Band carries out its mission also by holding concerts and taking part in charity shows and local community events. It has enriched Slovenian musical life with its diversified repertoire, as well as superb musicianship and interpretive artistry.

Sahareya

Artist

Currently one of the most promising and ambitious Slovenian talents, rapper, singer, dancer and actress of Syrian-Croatian origins is here to make a statement. Her musical expression, the fruit of collaboration with her brother, producer and MC SunnySun, is a highly explosive cocktail of contemporary hip-hop, trap, R&B and footwork tropes, and bouncy club rhythms from the UK and beyond sprinkled with some Arab influences. Her infectious feel-good hit “Otherside” made us all jump on the Sahareya hype train. But the hype is real, and we are now all waiting for her debut LP “Improvised Colors” to drop. Pure girl power in the tradition of icons like M.I.A. and Little Simz.

Samantha Maya

Artist

In the last year, Samantha Maya has performed on stages across Slovenia. She mainly performs pop/rock music with a mixture of r&b and funk.

Same babe

Artist

The group of four musicians formed ad hoc in 2003 in order to play at a literary dinner dedicated to poet Janez Menart. The artists recreate their songs in unconventional and minimalistic arrangements, and are noted for their melodious a cappella singing, cabaret entertainment and incorporating satirical verses by Frane Milčinski – Ježek. In 2009, the band’s self-penned song “Dobri možje” won First Prize at the Festival of Slovenian Chanson. The group’s soundscape gradually evolved, progressing from the initial acoustic music to the extended line-up that includes electric guitar. Same babe’s current style fuses cafe-cabaret acoustic interludes with inspired a cappella singing and the edgy sound of a full-blooded band infused with elements of rock, funk and punk.

Samo Kutin

Artist

One of the traditional instruments in his repertoire is the Hungarian medieval stringed instrument hurdy gurdy, which he plays at experimental and improvised music events. He conducts children's workshops, creates music for storytelling and theatre performances and is member of several ensembles, including Samo Gromofon, Salamandra salamandra, Najoua, Horda grdih and Širom.

Samuel Blues & Miha Erič

Artist

Samuel Blues & Miha Erich’s stage presence echoes in the piercing rhythms of intertwining chords and slides, accumulating in tonal cries of the accomplished, raw, gentle and vigorous blues-rock harmonica. The musicians have asserted themselves as the most original and talented representatives of Slovenian blues rock. If the harmonica never goes quiet and the percussive foot-stomping, the sounds of a slide guitar and husky singing refuse to stop, you can be sure that it’s none other than the blues duo consisting of Samuel Blues and Miha Erich.
