It has been around six months ago that Switzerland selected their entry for this year's contest, and it has been an eventful period for Takasa during this time, but publicity over various issues has kept their profile high in their home country.

Now, at long last, they are finally on the stage in Malmö. As they made their way to the stage most musicians will carry their instruments with them, with the obvious exceptions of items like drumkits and pianos.

With a mix of traditional musical instruments, such as drum, trombone and double bass, along with the more modern electric guitar shows that together Takasa are one.
