Moldovan entry: Participation at Eurovision Song Contest - opportunity to go on great European stage

Azerbaijan, Baku, March 24 / Trend, Vugar Imanov /

Participation at the Eurovision Song Contest should not only contribute to going on the European stage, but also provide invaluable experience of participation in such a grand project, Moldovan entry of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, Pasha Parfeny said in an interview with Trend on Friday.

"Participation at the Eurovision Song Contest - many useful and interesting acquaintances, which will surely play a role in the future," he said.

Parfeny said he used his personal savings for successful performance in the national selection, because there were no other funds.

"But I do not regret for that, on the contrary. In fact, perhaps it is the most successful bet, bet on myself, which justified my expectations," he said.

"Victory is not the main thing, the main thing is participation" - it is not for me. I will come to Baku for victory!" Parfeny said.

However, he believes, in this case, the victory is not the first place, but successful and memorable performance.

Parfeny said his song is very ironic, with the traditional elements of Moldavian creativity.

"Lautar" is a musician, who plays and sings at various events and falls in love with high society girl at one of the weddings, Parfeny said.

"This song is about the confluence of two different worlds - aristocratic, luxurious and Balkan music," he said.

"In my spare time, I am engaged in my favorite work - again doing music, and I love it very much. But, of course, I have other interests and needs, such as traveling, discovering new impressions, communication with interesting people, and more!" he said.
Parfeny said he knows a lot about Azerbaijan's music culture.

"Since I studied the music mainly at the variety-jazz department at the Tiraspol College, it was impossible not to be interested in famous jazz ensemble "Gaya", whose members first performed the western hit "Jesus Christ Superstar" in English in the Soviet Union! I must mention another great jazzman - Parviz Rustambeyov. The International Jazz Festival is held in memory of him in Baku. It is impossible not to mention Muslim Magamayev - the legend of the Soviet stage.

I also know that famous persons such as Larisa Dolina, who regularly visits her home town, People's Artist of Russia and Oscar Prize Winner Vladimir Menshov, Nobel Prize Winner in physics Lev Landau and Soviet secret service agent Richard Sorge were born in Baku," he said.

Parfeny said this year Moldova hosted Annual Music Festival "Martisor", which was attended by seven Azerbaijan artists for the first time.

Pasha Parfeny was born in 1986 in Moldova. He graduated from the jazz instruments class at the Transnistria Music College. He is Moldovan singer and songwriter, former soloist of "SunStroke Project" band.

Parfeny is a winner of the International Music Festival Slavianski Bazar in Vitebsk, Romania, in 2009. He has repeatedly participated in Moldovan Eurovision national selections.

The 57th Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Baku Crystal Hall, which is under construction near the area of the State Flag. The motto is "Light your fire".

The Baku Crystal Hall is the arena with a capacity of up to 23,000 spectators. Approximately 16,000 people will be able to attend each of the three Eurovision Song Contest live shows in May.

Logo of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest is "Fire Flower", while the motto is Light your fire!

Azerbaijan won the right to host the prestigious European song contest after the victory of Eldar Gasimov and Nigar Jamal (Ell / Nikki) at Eurovision 2011 in Dusseldorf, Germany last May.
