Today Sunstroke Project has found time to talk to us about his entry Hey Mamma
Hello Sunstroke Project
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?
Anton Ragoza(AR): Sunstroke Project is an unique musical project from Moldova is know for unusual mix of liric violin, jazz saxofone and magic vocal. In 2010 SSP represented Moldova at ESC in Norway, Oslo. In 2011 in LA on the WCOPA we won 13 gold medals and became the best instrumental-vocal project of the world. These days we are finishing our second album and preparing to represent Moldova at ESC 2017.
Your song that you will be presenting for the national final in Moldova is “Hey Mamma” . What can you tell us about the song? What was the inspiration for the song, and did you write it specifically for the national final in Moldova and Eurovision?
Sergey Stepanov(SS): Behind our new composition «Hey Mamma» stand the same things, as behind the others such as inspiration, good mood and of course work. Because each track for us is as our child and we want everybody to love it and appreciate it as we do. The main feature of composition is that it is executed with the most trendy arrangement. And we are sure that it is enough for person to listen to it once to be lit by its musical energy.
What is your favourite entry from the Eurovision Song Contest?
Sergey Yalovytsky(SY): Loic Nottet – Rhythm Inside (Belgium).
SS: Alexander Rybak – Fairytale(Norway).
AR: Sergey Lazarev – You Are The Only One(Russia).

We would like to visit all capitals of this world and to act in the biggest halls.
Has being on tv made you more self-conscious?
Yes, for sure, being on tv made us more self-conscious.
What ís the best bit of advice you have ever been given?

What’s your biggest fear?
Stepanov and Yalovitsky have a fear of the stomatologist, and I(Anton Ragoza) have a fear of height.

Our typical Sunday Afternoon is with a family on walk.
