Malta’s Ira Losco has started her rehearsals for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. Her broadcaster has now revealed the names of Ira’s creative team for Stockholm.
Among the names are Ira’s backing vocalists. She will bring four of them to Stockholm. Two of them are former Maltese national final participants: Anna Azzopardi and Pamela Bezzina. Furthermore, there will be two singers from Sweden: Lars Safsund and Molly Pettersson Hammar. Two time Melodifestivalen entrant and Walk On Water co-composer Molly will make her way to Eurovision in her own country… on stage for Malta.
The creative director will be Stephane Boko, who’s leading the stage performance Ira will have with her dancer Skorpion, who also featured in the official video. Boko has previously worked with some big names, includin Madonna and Cirque du Soleil. He isn’t the only one in the team to work with big names, as Alex Zabotto-Bentley has designed Ira’s dress for Stockholm. He has previously worked with Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga. Ira can’t wear her dress right now, as it’s in Stockholm for the stand-in rehearsals taking place this week.
Ira Losco and her team have just five days to go in Malta, before travelling to Stockholm. They’ll be flying out of the island on 1st May.
