Eurovision 2023 Finland: Käärijä – Cha cha cha

Finland is represented by Käärijä, a Finnish rapper, singer, and songwriter who is known for his energetic and shirtless performances.

Käärijä is from Vantaa in Finland and has been active in the music industry since 2014, but it wasn’t until 2020 that he released his debut album, Fantastista.

For the experimental rapper, it’s all about challenging genres. In his Eurovision entry, Cha Cha Cha, he combines rap, electronic music, metal, and schlager, with a performance that includes ballroom dancing, a neon green bolero jacket, and lots of wooden pallets. He wrote the song with two friends: Johannes ‘Kiro’ Naukkarinen and producer Aleksi Nurmi.
