Aliona Olehivna Savranenko, known professionally as Alyona Alyona, is a distinguished Ukrainian rapper and songwriter, born on June 14, 1991.

Originating from Kapitanivka, Novomyrhorod Raion, in Kirovohrad Oblast, Savranenko is a holder of two bachelor’s degrees, one of which she earned from the Gregory Skovoroda Pedagogical State University of Pereiaslav. Prior to her music career, she dedicated herself to teaching, initially working at kindergarten. After four years in the education sector, Savranenko stepped away from teaching as her music career began to take off.

Alyona Alyona at Haldern Pop Festival 2019, Germany Alyona’s journey into rap began in the mid-2000s, initially performing under the stage name Alyona Al.kaida. Her quest for a broader audience took a significant leap forward when, under her now-familiar moniker, she released her debut music video for the song “Rybky” in October 2018. This was followed by a second, professionally directed video for the same song later that month, and then by the video for “Holovy”  in November, which achieved one million YouTube views within its first month. Further releases included the music videos for “Vidchynyai” and “Zalyshayu sviy dim”, the latter symbolizing her departure from her hometown, Baryshivka.

Her career saw rapid expansion in 2019, marked by the release of her first album, Pushka, in April, featuring a mix of previously released and new songs, including a notable collaboration with Alina Pash on “Padlo” . Alyona Alyona’s unique approach to music and storytelling garnered her praise as “Ukraine’s most unlikely rap star” in that month’s Vogue. She continued to make her mark with performances at major festivals, such as the Sziget Festival in Budapest, and contributions to significant projects, including writing the lyrics for “Vilna”, performed by Tina Karol and Julia Sanina for the soundtrack of the Ukrainian film Viddana.

In 2020, Alyona Alyona signed with Def Jam Polska, further solidifying her international presence. The following year, she received the Public Choice Award at the Music Moves Europe Talent Awards contest and participated as part of the Ukrainian jury for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. Her most recent achievement includes winning the Ukrainian preselection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 alongside Jerry Heil with their song “Teresa & Maria,” highlighting her continued influence and success in the music industry. The song reached a 3rd place in the Grand Final of the contest.
