Tri prste pod popkom, the second collaboration between director/actress Maruša Oblak and Silence, is a rude, shameless, utterly reprehensible affair. In other words: a must-see. Based on obscene Slovene folk poetry, this cheeky little cabaret reveals the true reason as to why our grandparents bemoan the "good old days".

Four deliciously mischievous poems were set to music by Silence. The songs, performed by the cast, are ebullient, campy and quite unsettling. Take Mother, for instance: this foot-tapping, seemingly innocuous ditty delivers a fatal blow to the good name of motherly love. The songs were recorded and produced in April and May 2013 at Daily Girl, Silence's private studio. The score also includes two older, previously unreleased instrumentals.

Songs:
01 Cingu-lingu
02 Moški (Men)
03 Mati (Mother)
04 Tri prste pod popokom (Three Fingers Below the Belly Button)

Instrumentals:
05 The Chronicle
06 Guilt
