Merging musical heritage with popular music idioms, Katalena have always been fearless when pushing the boundaries of traditional music, taking it by the scruff of the neck and infusing it with a very individual interpretation. The band’s upcoming seventh album, to be debuted at Kino Šiška, draws on the heritage of Slovenian folk songs with a military theme, and its essence is co-shaped by the poetry of Ivo Brnčić put to music and by original songs that follow tradition in their content and form.

After Young Fathers, Algiers and 29 other music acts from all over Europe, MENT Ljubljana is revealing a further 26 new performers and the conference programme. Among others, MENT will feature two musicians who each started a small revolution in her field. Mary Anne Hobbs is regarded as one of the most influential personalities in music media and is a successful curator and DJ, while Dorit Chrysler has been proclaimed a sorceress on the theremin, an electronic instrument played without any physical contact. The instrument's inventor Léon Theremin also plays an important role in the film Elektro Moskva, a documentary tribute to the Russian pioneers of futuristic sounds, which will be screened at the Slovenian Cinematheque.

It’s pitch black everywhere you look, and the intro music buzzing around our ears sounds like it’s was lifted of a Forbidden Planet soundtrack. “This is theatre” one of the photographers points out with pronounced ambiguity, as we’re left staring in the darkness unravelling before us like depressed owls.

Only a few days after announcing Young Fathers will be performing on the first evening of MENT Ljubljana, Ljubljana’s winter festival surprises with another new and exciting act, Algiers. Hailing from Atlanta and now divided between New York and London – vocalist/guitarist Franklin James Fisher, bassist Ryan Mahan and guitarist Lee Tesche were joined by ex-Bloc Party drummer Matt Tong in 2015 –, Algiers have quickly established themselves as one of the most politically outspoken and intense live bands of today. Their second album "The Underside of Power", released by Matador Records in summer 2017, took their unique, intense blend of raw post-punk, dark electronics and passionate gospel soul to the next level.

The seminar raised questions such as: What lies between the “I” and the “We”? How can a distributed/multiple entity manifest itself in the political, cultural and biological spheres? How can identity experiments characterized by constant flux and mutations be understood? How do they play around and disrupt capitalistic structures that enclose the subject inside a one-dimensional unit?
