punk / performance/ discomfort roller coaster / fairy tale noise. Siksa is a Polish slang word for a naive and sexually attractive young woman, and 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 theatrical backgrounds, Siksa’s shows dissect the European consciousness. Siksa is a girl on a mission.
The duo played more than 250 shows in Poland and across Europe (UK, France, Greece, Estonia, Norway, Belarus, Lithuania, Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Denmark, Sweden) at music venues, squats, contemporary art galleries, on both big and DIY festivals.
