zalagasper (formerly Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl) is a Slovenian musical duo from Maribor consisting of vocalist Zala Kralj and multi-instrumentalist Gašper Šantl. The duo represented Slovenia [1][2][3] in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with the song "Sebi", finishing 15th [a] (out of 26 entrants) in the final.[4]

They released the singles "Valovi", "Baloni", and "S teboi" in 2018, before releasing their debut extended play Štiri in February 2019.[5][6]
