Ewa Farna

In preparation for my language exam I'm listening to more Czech music.  One of the Czech artists I have on my iPhone is Ewa Farna.

Ewa Farna is a Polish-Czech pop singer.  The first tip is that her first name is spelled in Polish.  The Czech spelling would be "Eva".

Ewa was born in 1993 in Vendryně, to a Polish family, near the Polish border.  She has dual-citizenship with Czechland and Poland.  In 2004 and 2005, she started winning local talent competitions in Czechia and Poland.

In 2006, at just 13, she released her first studio album called "Měls mě vůbec rád" (Did You Even Like Me).  The song hit #3 here, the album went platinum, she won a Český slavík for best new artist and became the the youngest commercially successful singer in Czechland.

She's released four studio albums in Czech and five in Polish.  Her albums have gone gold and platinum in both countries.  In 2013 she was a judge on Czech & Slovak SuperStar.  She's also been a judge on Poland's versions of X Factor and Idol.

One of my favourite songs is Na ostří nože (On the Edge of the Knife).  Here's the music video for it that I found out on YouTube.
