About the performer: “My artist name RRE comes from words Rikotaan Rajoja (let’s break the boundaries) and Elisa. I have founded Rikotaan Rajoja event. I have made music with computer since 2015. 14.2.2021 I published RNB/pop song Haaveita. Music is part of my identity and it empowers me alot. It really touches my emotions and moves me to tears.”
