Azerbaijan, Baku, March 19 /Trend V.Imanov/
Baku is a fascinating city, real oriental tale, with stunning architecture and an exciting atmosphere, Belarusian participants of Eurovision - 2012, members of Litesound told Trend.
"We want to feel the spirit of this city as quickly as possible! We thoroughly prepare for the trip - learning phrases in Azerbaijani language" Belarusian participants said.
Azerbaijan is a country with ancient history and culture according to one of the members of Litesound.
"We are inspired by the story and everything connected with it, and Azerbaijan - is just the place that can be called a legend! And, of course, it's great that we have a lot of Azerbaijani friends who live in Belarus. They love their country and always speak very warmly about it, and at the same time it is great that they really feel comfortable in our country," the musician said.
According to the band, they are looking forward to a trip to the competition, but at the same time worry that they wouldn't have time do everything, because there is not much preparation time.
The most difficult in preparation for the competition is to have time to realize conceived ideas. And, of course, it is difficult when there are so many things to do.
"Version of the song for the Eurovision will be ready very soon. The concept of staging will be build based on it. We would like it to be something that can really inspire. We believe in our success and try not to think about places and competitors," the musicians said.
Members of the band, who are brothers, don't divide role between each other, each engaged in his work.
"We support each other and we can not live without each other. We are best friend," the band member said.
According to them, Gunesh, the singer of Azeri origin, who competes for the right to represent Belarus, with whom they are familiar, is the singer with a very high level.
"She is known in our country. Moreover, she shows excellent results from year to year in preparing her presentations at the Eurofest. The fact that she failed to go to the Eurovision 2012, should set her to an even more drastic action next year, and she will represent Belarus at Eurovision and will perform well there, we're sure!" the participants said.
Members of the band noted that there are many Azerbaijanis in Belarus. "There are our friends among them. And the fact that our nations are friends - it's just wonderful!" the musicians said.
