Biography

Triana Park is a Latvian band consisting of vocalist Agnese Rakovska, guitarist Arturs Strautins, drummer Edgars Vilyums and bassist Kristaps Erglis. 

The band was formed by Agnese Rakovska and her father (Aivars Rakovskis), joined by Edgars Vilums, Kristaps Erglis and eventually Arturs Strautins. They took part in Eirodziesma, the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest  in 2008 (Bye, 4th), 2009 (Call Me Any Time You Need A Problem, 4th place), 2010, 2011 and 2012, failing to win the Eirodziesma (Latvian National Selection). In 2011, their song “Upside Down” qualified for the final of the qualifying round, but the band withdrew due to Rakovska’s illness. Triana Park’s debut studio album “EnterTainment” was released in 2010, and in August 2014 the band released the Triana Park EP, including the lead single  “Iron Blue”.

The band participated in Supernova to represent Latvia with the song “Line” and was selected for Eurovision 2017. Unfortunately they didn’t reach the final in the contest.

In 2018, Triana Park released another single called “Home”. The song was included in the third studio album, “Alive”, which was released in April 2018. At the same time, the new single “Domas” was released on video, followed one month later by “Dope”. “Domas” reached the number 1 spot in the Latvian charts. On 7 August of the same year another song in Latvian, “Rozā Brille” was released. In September and October, the band toured through the Baltic States. The song “Star”, a collaboration with Jānis Aišpurs, was released in October too.

On 22 June 2019, a new single was released: “Tiekas divatā”, followed by “Viss Ir Izdomāts” on 9 September. On 15 October of the same year, the band presented their 4th album, “11”. In December, the song “Lavina” from this album came out. The band planned a tour in March and April 2020. However, this tour had to be postponed due to COVID19.

Prior to the tour, Triana Park released a new single and video: “Kamēr”, a colaboration with Intars Busulis. On 27 October 2020, they released an EP, “Kompozīcijas”. A 26 minutes documentary about the EP was released in December.

On 11 December 2021, a triptych was released called “Domu raksti”, containing three new videos. 

2023 started musically for the band with songs in January and March.
