ManuElla is one of the most popular female singers in Slovenia. In 2016 she represented her country with her song “Blue and Red” at the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm. Since early childhood music has played the biggest role in ManuElla’s life. By the age of six she mastered accordion and at the age of 13 she went on to form her first band as a singer and bass guitarist. However, she has always felt her best as a vocalist and as a 16-year-old she made her first performance on national TV.

After the performance at Eurovision Song Contest she received amazing feedback from influential Swedish music industry professionals and in the summer of 2016 she was invited back to perform in Sweden several times. This experience gave ManuElla the courage to forge a new career and she subsequently made the decision to move to Sweden and create a name for herself internationally.
ManuElla is now in the process of recording her debut Album in her unique country-pop crossover and indie-rock style. Together with her partner Maryan who is also the composer and co-writer of her Eurovision song “Blue and Red”, Manuella has been performing for many years on the highest level at different events.
