Little Big

Little Big is a Russian rave band founded in 2013. It is built of four members:

  • Ilya Ilich Prusikin
  • Sergey Gokk Makarov
  • Sonya Tayurskaya
  • Anton Boo Lissov

Two members will be added to the band just for their performance at Eurovision Song Contest:

  • Florida Chanturia
  • Yuriy Muzychenko

Influenced by the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Rammstein or Vivaldi, Little Big's music genre is not unanimous but brings the Russian culture alive while mixing it with hip hop and rave music. They call themselves a "satirical art collaboration" and are known for mocking stereotypes, mostly in their home country.

With three albums released, three EPs and millions of views on YouTube, it's safe to say that Little Big are a big name in Russia's music industry and even around Europe.

In 2017 the Russian singer Yulia Samoylova was denied entry to Ukraine, and therefore Russia decided to boycot Eurovision 2017. She returned for the 2018 contest in Lisbon, but for the first and only time, Russia didn't qualify for the Grand Final.
