Biennial of Slovene contemporary dance
by BETON Ltd.
The Austrian supergroup is composed of Schmieds Puls singer Mira Lu Kovacs and jazz band Kompost 3 in which rapper/drummer Koenig handles the drums. Mira, who makes dark pop with her parent band, is regarded as one of the most expressive voices in Austria. The genuinely fresh and colourful group thus combines elements of jazz, dubstep, breakbeat, and, of course, pop. The result is a cinematic journey on which the band is not afraid of sudden turns and unexpected climbs. In September, Seayou Records released their debut album “And To In A”.

This led to her first challenge, the covers that have been filling up her YouTube channel over the past year, and then to an even greater one – her own original songs. Here’s to Zala’s challenges!
