What does Eurovision mean to you?

      Eurovision for us is an opportunity to present through music, to audiences of different generations, both from us and from the global community, what represents us as a people, as a cultural identity. And it would also be an opportunity to meet other artists to enjoy diversity, to get to know each other and create intercultural connections.   


What defines you as artists? Describe yourself in 3 famous Eurovision songs.

       At this stage we are defined by our openness to new musical horizons, without giving up our cultural identity. It's very hard to choose just 3 tracks. But if we have to try, let's go through the list of the tracks: Alexander Rybak - Fairytale, Zdob and Zdub with the Advahov Brothers - Little Train, Nelly Ciobanu - Hora from Modova. 


What do you think differentiates you to be the artist representing Moldova in 2023?

      The public and the jury will decide, we have every confidence that the best contestant will go. All contestants are different and express their creativity in their own style, we will do it our way, as we have accustomed our audience over the years.


What is the story and message of your play?

      "Bade, Bădișor, Bădiță" is an archaic song that recreates the peasant atmosphere of a long time ago in the lands of Moldavia.

      The original music is written by composer Jonathan Alexandru, adapted to our vocal and interpretive style. The arrangement devised by Jonathan is made up of only traditional instruments, 16 in number, almost all of which were printed by Alexandru.

     The lyrics are written by folk singer and lyricist Elena Ionita, they describe the following story:

     "In a village of the old Moldavian forests, sits a proud girl with much longing, waiting for Bădișor, who left at dawn for the stable on the hill. And the proud one hurried to mourn, and she stayed a long time, but the Badii's sheaf did not move. For it was only the old Badișor who ate his bread with his own hands. Used for tilling the soil, but also for lifting the log. And he didn't hurry along the path, because his pride didn't crack, and he had wood to blow on. Whether it was a whistle or a bagpipe, or even a sheep's horn that warmed the Badișor, it was the horse with the hissing."




What details can you tell us about the national finals show?

      We are preparing and working intensively with the whole team we have with us. We let ourselves be inspired by those who know their job well and know the secret of good shows.
