Ukrainian singer and rapper Alina Pash sat down with Consequence following her set at Mad Cool Festival 2022 for an interview about representing her culture on an international stage.

As war in her homeland continues, Pash was flown out to Mad Cool last-minute to thrill the crowd with a vibrant, visually engaging set. In our conversation, she emphasizes how much love she has for Ukraine and its rich history, emphasizing that she believes there will come a day when it will be safe for people to visit and experience it for themselves. She’s decked out in an outfit featuring the colors of the Ukrainian flag and points out that her jewelry is also from Ukrainian designers.

The singer and rapper has spent a large part of the summer on a tour titled “Join the Power of Ukrainian Culture.” She’s proud to be an ambassador for the country, and unpacks the feelings of doing so on a global platform like Mad Cool.
