Still working on that hot first release.



In 2007 'Kaleena' was a 16 year old rising RnB singer with a video featured on Much Music and an album of original songs. At 18 she became ill and for three years was left with barely enough energy to go about her days. After healing she embarked on a life-changing trip to Europe; in her first week everything she had was stolen and she found herself sleeping on the streets. There she met a group of street musicians who inspired her to revisit music. On her return she began busking, writing songs and developed her sound as Kalyna Rakel. Since then she has released 4 albums of original music, performed across Europe, Canada and the United States and been featured in festivals and on radio stations all around the world.

On June 15th 2016 Kalyna released her latest album The Other Side. It has been featured on CBC’s Here and Now, The Signal and Metro Morning where host Matt Galloway called Kalyna Rakel one of the most exciting new voices in Canadian music.

Kalyna is currently hard at work on her next album, featuring guitarist Kevin Breit and a cast of some of Canada’s top young musicians.
