(1 Vote)

The team of Radio International had the pleasure of being in attendance at the Eurovision In Concert last week and thus the opportunity to speak to several artists who will be competing in this years' international showcase. Gianluca who himself was present during the festivities has been finalising his promotional tour across Europe heading to countries such as Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and the United Kingdom. We would like to invite you to the weekly Ultimate Eurovision Experience. Apart from the means of FM Radio in the Netherlands on FM 106.8 and the audio stream from the studio via www.radiointernational.tv and on Digital Cable 781 & Cable 8.1Mhz in the Netherlands, the show will also be web-televised via the Radio International TV Channel from the studio and linking up the many international Eurovision fans and friends and play your requests and read your messages out on air. The simulcast will be from 2000 – 2300 hours CET when fans can join in and chat amongst each other via the Chat Room and request their favourite Eurovision entry.

Moldova will be represented in this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest by Aliona Moon and her entry O Mie, which will be performed entirely in Romanian as opposed to the English language used during the national final. The track is co-written by Pasha Parfeny who took to the stage on behalf of the same nation last year, achieving one of the best results with his entry Lautur. This will be the first of five interviews, with six artists for the simple reason given above. Aliona will discuss the choice of language, apart from the idea of working with Pasha on the song following her accompaniment as a backing vocalist last year. Keeping in line with the current interviews published on escflashmalta.com, where I serve as the Head of Communications, comes an interview with Alyona Lanskaya who will represent Belarus with the track Solayoh composed by Marc Paelinck to the lyrics of Martin King. She discusses last years' participation along with the choice of the track, noting that several songs had been submitted for interest.

Cezar will be representing Romania with his track It's My Life which is somewhat different from all the rest due to the fact that it is within a pop/opera genre which does not really follow a typical form in terms of song. This is the third artist whose interview will be aired this week and he will be followed by another male in the form of Robert Bellarosa whose entry Love Kills is co-written by Iain James and Jukka Immonen. One of the aforementioned writers has worked with Emeli Sande, Little Mix and One Direction, responsible for some of their major hits including Read All About It and Wings. Both gentlemen are ecstatic to get to the international showcase with the hope of doing their nation proud. It is important to spread the message of the country across in the best possible manner. The final interview for the week will be with none other than Krista Siegfrids whose entry Marry Me has been getting a lot of attention as of late due to the unequivocal support towards marriage equality and the rebranding of the campaign towards #Team Ding Dong.

Those are all of the interviews planned for this week but nevertheless, you will be able to catch more in the coming weeks including those recorded during the Eurovision In Concert. There will be a number of new releases, amongst them a track by Jelena Tomasevic who represented Serbia on home soil with Oro back in 2008. In the meantime, there will also be a number of cover versions as recorded throughout the year, a feature which will be returning at the hands of David Mann. All of the latest news is also covered during the weekly broadcast noting resources from escflashmalta.com and escXtra where Luke Fisher, the Editor makes a weekly round-up. A spotlight on the Eurovision Song Contest will be switched on metaphorically of course by Alasdair Rendall as he chooses a topic for the week. Follow the show through the official website and also send your requests through the contact link which is found on the aforementioned website.
