Hellwana

Hellwana, the winner of music export project of Czech Radio’s youth station Radio Wave, will perform in Israel on May 15 as part of Europe Day.

Hellwana appeared on the Czech music scene out of nowhere in 2017 and made a great statement of confidence with her first EP called Sunbeam influenced by Grime, R’n’B, Neo-Soul and Trap. She’s a great singer, rapper and performer. In her lyrics she pushes body positivity and advocates for young women. Hellwana spent her childhood in England so English is her second mother tongue. As a member of Trash Gang collective, Hellwana currently works mainly with her partner producer and DJ Cyper Sound with who she also performs. Among others, she mentions Jorja Smith and Skepta as her favourites. Besides her music career she also works as a fashion model.  

In September 2018 she was voted the most promising progressive Czech act by international jury composed mainly of radio experts in Czeching, music export project of Czech Radio’s youth station Radio Wave. 

Czeching is a project focused on music export curated by Radio Wave. Its goal is to support up and coming bands in breaking through onto international stages and into the playlists of European radio stations.

 Czeching is a helping hand outstretched towards the local music scene. Radio Wave has been providing opportunities for the best acts on the Czech progressive scene to make important steps towards international audiences and listeners since 2013. Czeching grants its winners a chance to create and release a professional recording of their music, make a video, takes care of the media support, sends them out to the biggest European showcase festival Eurosonic Noorderslag and opens the doors into European radios.
