Etceteral are a trio featuring saxophonist Boštjan Simon, drummer Marek Fakuč and visual artist Lina Rica. It is a vehicle for exploring repetitive, polyrhythmic electroacoustic music and draws its influences from Kraut-Rock and Afro-Futurism. Their purpose is to create a propulsive rhythmical feel by forging an immediate symbiosis between one synth, two acoustic instruments and generative visuals.

First of all, she’s got style. Her own style, to say it precisely. Put June Cocó behind a Piano and she’ll fill the room – any room – with magic. June Cocó is multitalented and multistylistic. Once you hear her music it’s a completely satisfying, very uplifting and inspiring feeling. There is a broad collection of different styles, lyrics and attitudes. And of course the voice and creative energy is the essence and the consistent thing behind all the music.
