Lakiko is a cello – bowed, scratchy, repetitive and haunting. However Lakiko is also a voice, singing about a nomadic existence, nightmares, an archaic past and a dystopian future. Lakiko – aka Lana Kostic – was created in 2016. Her music – an impression of her musical biography – could not be more manifold: influences of Bosnian music blend with classical music, breathy pop vocals with contemporary spoken word, driving beats next to nearly endless glissandi-loops, and in between again and again the haunting sound of a cello. Lakiko’s music seems to brainwash its audience, reprogramming eyes and ears, screening a non-existing movie in your mind’s eye. And once the spectacle is over the listener is sent home with a sense of bitter-sweet melancholy.
