SIKSA: POLAND – OUR RAP + OUR PUNK + OUR ROOTS + OUR HISTORY
Siksa is a Polish slang word for a naive and sexually attractive young woman. It is also the band name adopted by two artists — spoken word poet and punk singer Alex Freixeit and bassist Buri — who have become adept at making certain sections of society uncomfortable. Siksa duo is the most divisive Polish artist in recent memory, whose radical and brutally honest performances are smashing the patriarchy one gig at a time. Coming from punk, literary and theatre backgrounds, Siksa shows dissect the European consciousness. To quote her own words, she’s a girl on a mission.
