Moldova is one of the youngest members of the Eurovision Song Contest. Since its debut in 2005, the country has participated thirteen times, with no absences.
The best result is a third-place in the last Contest, in Kyiv, with the SunStroke Project and the song Hey, Mamma!.
This year Moldova will be represented by a Moldovan folk-pop trio formed in 2011: DoReDos, a name inspired by the first two notes of the musical scale, DO – RE.
The trio is composed by Marina Djundiet, Eugeniu Andrianov and Sergiu Mîța.
Marina is the daughter of a guitarist and a dancer of folk dances. She’s graduated from the Academy of Music, Theater and Fine Arts.
Eugeniu began to sing when he was ten year old. “I really wanted to sing, and the only one who believed in me was my mother,” he said. Eugeniu studied at the Tiraspol’s College of Music, and then graduated from the Academy of Music, Theater and Fine Arts.
Sergiu is born in the same city of his fellows, Rybnitsa. His music teacher noticed his talent when Sergiu was in the third grade.
They rose to fame when in 2017 they won the contest New Wave in Sochi, Russia and there they got the attention of Philipp Kirkorov, that partecipated to the Eurovision in 1995.
Kirkov composed for them the song My Lucky Day that will represent Moldova in Lisbon this year.
