Nasirov brothers – Amil and Ramil (Kurgan & Agregat band) became the hundredth winners of the “Talents For Ukraine” grant program from the KSE Foundation!
Twin brothers Amil and Ramil are talented, atypical and original. Together they write music, act in Ukrainian films and help the Armed Forces of Ukraine – since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, they have already collected 20 million UAH for the army! And the $5,000 grant received from the charity foundation of the Kyiv School of Economics was also directed to improving Ukraine’s defense capabilities: the drones purchased by the brothers are already helping on the front line.
The “Talents For Ukraine” grant program with a total budget of $1,000,000 has been running for almost a year. This is a unique support program for Ukraine, aimed at helping a person in his development – the grant does not regulate the direction of use of the received funds and does not require any reports or achievement of KPIs. The purpose of the program is to give a talented person financial support and not limit his potential.
Thanks to the “Talents For Ukraine” initiative, the system of air quality analysis stations has grown in the cities of Ukraine, Ukrainian-made robots and reconnaissance drones have started working at the front line, an educational podcast has been launched, leather from mushroom mycelium is grown in the laboratory, and a comics book about character Nox has become popular among children, and more.
Now the KSE Foundation team is proud to welcome the Nasirov brothers to the community of talented winners!
The boys have been playing music for 9 years. In 2014, they founded the group “Kurgan & Agregat”, which today has become one of the main hip-hop groups of Ukraine. In the texts, the brothers use a living language: Surzhik and Slobozhan dialect, which makes their work special and “their own”. And from now, Amil and Ramil are also film actors – they debuted with the main roles in Antonio Lukich’s film “Luxembourg, Luxembourg”, which was shown at the Venice Film Festival.
In addition to creative achievements, the brothers are engaged in volunteering and actively help the army. But they are already planning how after the victory they will go on a tour – to visit the Ukrainian Crimea and Donbas 💛
