Slon in Sadež


Slon in Sadež

Slon in Sadež (English: "The Elephant and the Apple") is a Slovenian musical group, formed in 2001 by Jure Karas ("The Elephant") and Igor Bračič ("The Apple"). They perform music of various genres. Their music is humorous and mostly politically orientated.

They discuss topics such as family violence, drug prohibition, entering NATO and violence in Guantanamo bay. They also made a few parodies to popular Slovene turbo folk songs ("Brizgalna brizga" by Atomik Harmonik). Most of their music is in Slovene, but also in English (the hit "Taliban Reggae") and in Serbian/Croatian.

The original duo also performs at "Radio Center" as "Radio Slon in Sadež" with humorous shows. There they often make fun of various Slovene dialects.

The other members of the group are "Matjaž Ugovšek-Ugo", "Igor Brvar-Jovo" (later left the group), "Rok Šinkovec", "Matej Horvat" and "Samo Šalomon".

In 2004 they received the Viktor Award as prominent media personalities. In 2008 they have run the whole Viktor Award show. [cite web|url=http://24ur.com/ekskluziv/domaca-scena/viktorji-07-slavje-pop-tv-in-kanala-a.html|title=Viktorji 07: Slavje POP TV in Kanala A!|accessdate=2008-04-05]
