Come Together with Swiss Eurovision entrant Rykka doing a special set at the Hard Rock Cafe Stockholm before she hits the big stage for Eurovision Semi Final 2 with "The Last of Our Kind".
Canadian born and raised Rykka will be introduced by the Canadian Ambassador to Sweden Kenneth Macartney.
Globen is a 14 minute ride from the closest Metro Station from Hard Rock Cafe which is just a few minutes walk away.
Tucked away in the vast hills and deep lakes near Zürich, Switzerland, and in the Canadian wilderness surrounding Vancouver, Rykka has been writing feverishly and honing her next sound. Change has been a constant for the multitalented songwriter, who started as an acoustic folk artist under her name Christina Maria before reinventing herself as Rykka and emerging with an alternative pop bang.
Her new single, “The Last of Our Kind,” is a triumphant mega-ballad about standing for love at the end of the world. It was produced by Warne Livesey at Toronto’s Coalition Music, and Rykka recorded the vocals in the Swiss village of Belalp. Now, after winning the Swiss national final, Rykka is honoured to represent her homeland in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm.
Her album Beatitudes is an offering to the pop gods, with throbbing beats and mega-choruses contrasted by confessional comedowns. She will spend 2016 on tour, and the album will be out in the fall.
