Sabina Ddumba  

Sabina became one of Sweden's most celebrated pop acts after the release of hit songs such as "Effortless" and "Not Too Young." During 2016 she released her debut album Homeward Bound and won a Swedish Grammy and P3 Gold Award for "Best Newcomer."

Creating and curating the new wave of highly influential, urban never-look-back music, Bladee, member of Gravity Boys a.k.a Drain Gang has established an obsessive cult following in the cut-throat world of music and fashion. Bladee has gained notoriety for his futuristic take on emotionally charged R&B. From walking the runway for Nasir Mazhar to performing sold-out shows in iconic venues across the globe with Yung Lean, selling his clothes at VFILES and clocking streaming figures into the millions from his debut album Eversince, he is just getting started. Sweden Makes Music will be his first stateside performance as a solo artist.

Nadia Tehran  
Nadia’s sound combines soaring vocals and anti-authoritarian raps in a volatile mix of political punk and hip-hop. The provocative video for her single "Refugee" was recorded covertly in Iran and released earlier this summer to widespread acclaim.

Born in Zimbabwe and rapping since the age of 13, WOE belongs to the Tensta Gospel Choir, just like Lykke Li, Seinabo Sey and many other internationally recognized Swedish artists did early in their careers. WOE’s performance at Sweden Makes Music will mark one of his very first international appearances.

ishi vu  
ishi vu has set himself apart from the more conventional sides of the Swedish underground scene. By blending a motley array of influences into something cohesive, he reaches even outside of his particular scene. What better way to exemplify this than with last summer's open-air anthem that simultaneously saw mainstream radio play? With recent gigs in London and Berlin, ishi vu now makes the trek across the Atlantic for his first-ever U.S. performance. You can expect the music to take off in leftfield club music - where it's bound, is less certain, but you will remember it.
