Elza Budau is undoubtedly a well-known figure, a legend and one of the most prestigious lyricists in Slovenian popular music. In the golden era of Slovenian popular music she wrote the lyrics for some unforgettable songs which are still popular to this day, such as A Summer Night, Without Words, A Freckled Girl, You are My Love and others. Her literary opus is over 1000 pieces strong. In 2003 the poet and writer was honoured with the Viktor Lifetime Achievement Award, and four years later she won the Ježek Award.
The author’s art will be reproduced in music and lyrics by leading Slovenian artists.
