Niki R:ce and Phenomenon

There is so much youthful energy in the song Phenomenon by Niki R:ce, who is in fact Nicole Rizova who used to be a member of the children’s vocal group Bon-Bon.

Her partner, in music and in life, is Tsvetan Marinov, who is familiar to audiences as a member of the band Funkiliciouswhere he plays the guitar and does the arrangements. Niki and Tsvetan have been working together for several years, and they say it gives them enormous pleasure.

Phenomenon is their first song in the Bulgarian language. The music is by the two of them, and the lyrics are entirely by Tsvetan. For this project, they worked with other talented young people like bass player Emilio Marholev from another popular band - SoulBmollwith whom they did the arrangement. The song also features the voices of the girls from the band LaTiDa.

Though it is a light-hearted song, Phenomenon comes with a message:

“The song is ironic, about the moment that comes in people’s lives when they start to think how cool they are, how interesting and how they deserve to have an incredible future – without working for it,” Niki says. “The text may seem fun and humorous but it actually brings some truths that will make us think. Some people may even find it uncomfortable – because they will see their own selves in it.”
