Kalush Orchestra is a Ukrainian hip-hop band that combines ethnic motifs with modern sounds using different folk instruments.

The band was named after the Ukrainian city of Kalush. Set in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, it serves as a mascot that inspires the band to involve different folk elements and authentic Ukrainian music within their songs. Moreover, it is the hometown of band member Oleh Psiuk.

Their Eurovision entry, Stefania, is a tribute to Oleh’s mother, which she only heard for the very first time when she saw the band compete in Ukraine’s Eurovision selection show, Vidbir.

One of the group’s members already has experience of the Eurovision Song Contest: Ihor travelled to Rotterdam last year to compete with his other band, Go_A.

Lyrics of Stefania

Стефанія мамо мамо Стефанія, Розквітає поле, а вона сивіє, Заспівай мені мамо колискову Хочу ще почути твоє рідне слово. Вона мене колисала дала мені ритм і напевне силу волі не забрати в мене бо дала вона Напевне знала може більше і від соломона, ломаними дорогами прийду я завжди тебе Вона не розБудить не будить, мене в сильні бурі Забере в бабулі 2 дулі, ніби вони кулі Дуже добре знала мене не була обманута, як була дуже втомлена, гойдала мене в такт Стефанія мамо мамо Стефанія, Розквітає поле, а вона сивіє, Заспівай мені мамо колискову Хочу ще почути твоє рідне слово. Я не в пеленах но ма, но ма, хватить, як би я не виріс на виріст, за речі платить Я не мала дитина, вона далі нерви тратить, я гуляв, шлях би тебе трафив, Ти все молода о мамо на піку, якщо не ціню опіку на піку слави мені втупіку Забивайте піку цю піку я би попік спік, своєю любов‘ю Стефанія мамо мамо Стефанія, Розквітає поле, а вона сивіє, Заспівай мені мамо колискову, Хочу ще почути твоє рідне слово
Mother Stephania Stephania mother The field is blooming, but her hair is getting grey Mother, sing me the lullaby I want to hear your dear word She was rocking me as a baby, she gave me a rhythm, And you can‘t take willpower from me, as I got it from her I think she knew more than King Solomon. I‘ll always find my way home, even if all roads are destroyed She wouldn‘t wake me up even if there was a storm outside Or if there was a storm between her and grandma, She trusted me over everyone else Even when she was tired, she just kept rocking me Lully-lully-lullaby Mother Stephania Stephania mother The field is blooming, but her hair is getting grey Mother, sing me the lullaby I want to hear your dear word I‘m not a kid anymore, but she will always treat me like one I‘m not a kid anymore, but she keeps worrying about me, anytime I‘m out Mother, you are still young. If I don‘t appreciate your kindness, I‘m moving towards a dead-end But my love for you has no end. Mother Stephania Stephania mother The field is blooming, but her hair is getting grey Mother, sing me the lullaby I want to hear your dear word
