"Our music is our thoughts about values and problems in daily life, about phenomenons and feelings which are familiar to everyone - good and evil, love and hatred. Many songs are based on our experiences and real stories of life." This is the point where the biography of Legato starts.
Yga (Igor Ragozin) and Deiwuzas (Deivydas Katinas) met in the beginning of the summer in 2005 in “Porno Sound” studio . They found a lot in common, so they started to work together. After six months this relationship gained certain form and has got the name Legato (in music term legato means the cohesive combination of sounds).
Soon the band was signed by a new label U-Sound (dedicated to urban music) and was released their first single Verpetas with the young r'n'b singer Austėja. The song became popular among the Lithuanian hip-hop fans, and was played in various radio stations. The first Legato album Po viena saule was released in 2006. The radio singles Viskas ore, Krantai, Po viena saule did not go without notice and Legato was nominated as “The Group of the Year”, “The Album of the Year” and “The Song of the Year” at the Lithuanian Hip-hop Awards 2006. The biggest radio station in Lithuania "Radiocentras" nominated the band as "The Alternative of the Year".
