After years of backing up Swedish pop royalties such as Seinabo Sey, Zara Larsson and Oskar Linnros, Daniel Rathana finally got the chance to try her wings as an artist. And fly she did. Given Rathanas indisputable luminosity it’s a mystery she remained in the shadows for so long. Her expression is – much like her personality – honest, charming, and witty. Pair that with her unique blend of R&B, pop and 80s and you get an irresistible mixture.
2020 Daniela Rathana released her gospel-infused EP ‘Halva vägen fri’ but it was with her widely appreciated debut album ‘Rathana Club’ (2021) that her big breakthrough came. And although the pandemic might have slowed Rathana down, nothing will stop her from turning the Swedish scene upside down. Just recently she received two Swedish Grammis nominations, and this summer her presence will bless Way Out West.
Daniela Rathana will play in Slottsskogen on Thursday Aug 11.
