Who is Kalush Orchestra

Ukraine’s winning band is made up of six members, all of which are currently splitting their time between fighting in Kyiv and representing Ukraine in the contest. They originally placed second in the national selection process, losing to Alina Pash – however, in February 2022 they were offered first prize after Pash was no longer able to take part in the contest. The members all have their own individual talents, from rapping to dancing – they can do it all. Their first win came in 2004, when People’s Artist of Ukraine, Ruslana, entered with her self-composed song Wild Dances.

Kalush Orchestra was originally a rap and hip-hop group formed in 2019, under the name Kalush.
