The 11th finalist of the National Selection for Eurovision 2024 is known: who is ANKA and what the song ''Palala'' is about

ANKA (real name Anna Korchenova) is a participant of The Voice 13 who got into Ivan Klymenko's team. In addition to singing, she writes songs for other artists and herself.

The national selection finalist is from Kyiv but has been living in the Netherlands for the past year and a half. She has been playing the flute since she was three years old and sang in folk groups as a child.

"A few years ago, she launched her project KORCHENOVA, and in 2022-2023, she released 13 songs, including solo songs, a duet with Slava Kaminska, and hits with Ukrainian DJs," the website says.

The artist claimed on The Voice that she wanted to promote Ukrainian folklore in the world, so she performed "Carpathian Rap." Her song contains elements of folk combined with modern motifs, which the audience liked.

On her social media accounts, ANKA thanked those who voted and producer Ivan Klymenko for the song written for her.

"Palala" is a song whose emotions will definitely be familiar to everyone! After all, we all have dreams, but often, in order to achieve our goals, we fall, face failures, are left alone with our destructive thoughts and see no way out. It's like we're stuck in the past, within four walls," the artist described the track.
