Only one week left for the national final in Belarus, which is scheduled for the 20th January 2017. Today, we managed to interview Naviband.
First of all thank you for your time talking to us. How are you ? Can you introduce yourselves ? What can you tell us about yourself?
We are a big team. But only two persons is a core of the band – Ksyusha and Artem – they compose, write lyrics, create image of the band and give their listeners the most important thing – warmth and energy.
Your song that you will be presenting for the national final in Belarus is “Historyja majho žyccia” What can you tell us about the song?
Our song is about believing in the best, about the most beautiful and interesting moments that are going to happen and make our own history. We feel our connection with nature, that’s why our music video looks so natural. We filmed out music video in the forest. We feel that our song is somewhat similar to traditional Irish motives. We are eager to show that Belarus is a unique, authentic, bright and picturesque country with its own language and traditions. Besides that, there are a couple of moments in our song that the entire Europe can sing along with us – Hey! Hey! Heyeyeyey!
What was the inspiration for the song, and did you write it specifically for the national final in Belarus and Eurovision?
We are very serious about winning this year. We feel confidence in our song, our characters. We feel ourselves much more natural this time. We are eager to show that Belarus is a unique, authentic, bright and picturesque country with its own language and traditions. Besides that, there are a couple of moments in our song that the entire Europe can sing along with us – Hey! Hey! Heyeyeyey!
Your song is the only song that is not in English in this competition. What do you think about this fact? Do you plan to release an English Version of this song? If you win, will you sing this song in English?
It’s very important for us to let Eurovision 2017 audience hear a song in Belarusian language, our native language.
