About the event

Magua – one-man band from Kyiv, Ukraine.

Magua’s music is a mix of big beat, breakbeat, punk, electronic, hardcore punk, grunge, folk and funk among other styles. Harmonica, voice, drum machine and bass guitar combine to create a contrast of raw, loud sound with soft, melancholic tones.

Starting as a three-piece band in 2007 Magua focused on creating new material and touring in Ukraine. In 2016 they released their debut album “AGATA”. Since then, Magua’s style and sound have been constantly evolving and in 2018 it became a solo project. In 2018 Magua released the single “Ран Лола Ран” with a live music video, and in 2022 he released his EP ‘Bingo’. In summer 2022 he released a video “ХАЛІВАР” as a reaction to russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Magua is currently on a charity tour in support of Ukraine in Europe and UK.

Opening act - PUSTOSH

Pustosh is a minimalistic duo from Kyiv that has now become an even more minimalistic solo act to prove that no war can stop their magical songs be spread around the world and raise some funds for the Ukrainian kids.

It was Wednesday when they had their last practice, preparing to record a new song on Saturday and finally return to touring after the pandemic. However, on Thursday at 4 am, everyone was woken up by Russian missiles (unfortunately, someone wasn't), and a new life began. Maria (bass, vocals) was stuck in a blockade near Bucha for three weeks, but she magically managed to escape and now lives in the UK.

They haven't seen each other since that Wednesday, but they have decided that the songs still need to be live. Maria is now performing charity gigs in support of Ukraine in England and Europe on her own, as a symbol of the emptiness that the war has brought into the lives of Ukrainians.
