poetic contemporary folk

Katja Šulc is a singer, songwriter and musician from Slovenia. Eclectic and diverse, her work is characterized by poetry set to music and storytelling, embracing contemporary folk, chanson, modern and traditional poetry and endangered languages and cultures. Her debut album MILA (2008) features lyrical poetry of beloved Slovenian poetess and actress Mila Kačič. TWISTED DELIGHT (2013) is based on original lyrics written at poetry workshops in New York, where Katja was mastering her craft at the New School (Jazz & Contemporary Music). Her third album KAMLISAJLAN (2016) pays homage to Rromani poetry from Balkans and Eastern Europe. Wrapped in simple, folk-like melodies and chord changes, the poems are flavored by hypnotic, repetitive world music rhythms. Praised as ‘exceptional’, ‘wonderful’, ‘brave’, the album reached international radio stations (BBC, IMER, WFMU, RNE) and music venues throughout the world (Ex-Yu countries, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, France, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Nepal, China, US, Mexico, Guatemala, Bolivia, Brazil). Katja’s latest album CARICIAS (2021) is inspired by Mexico and its poetry, presenting contemporary, folk and indigenous poems and songs. Having spent a major part of the last decade in the country, Katja pays homage to the land that marked her on many levels, pouring into songs the experience of this transformative journey. In the beginning of 2022 Katja released the first draft of her upcoming fifth album, inspired by Native American poetry and culture.
