Dima Koldun worked his magic in Helsinki 2007 scoring Belarus its best result so far, sixth. He was so hot in his native Belarus after that and winning the local Star Factory the year before that various producers were fighting to produce his debut album, amongst them Philipp Kirkorov, Viktor Drobysh and Alexander Lunev that eventually got the job. That collaboration ended soon enough when Viktor refused to consider including Dima's self penned songs on the album... The album came out finally in September 2009 and I bought it in Vilnius for some 4 euros last week. It's a decent album including his original Eurovision entry Angel mechti, a new version of Work your magic in Russian, Dai me silu 2009 and a couple of pop songs in English, I surrender and Somebody's loving you. As bonus tracks two dance versions of Nastroysya na menya and Ya lyublyu tebya. Unfortunately the album does not include his fabulous single Tsarevna!
Since then he has released excellent single V komnale pustoy and flirted with Eurovision while starring in the first Russian rock opera titled The star and death of Joaquin Murety. His latest single is Night pilot and it's great, too! Belarus, send him back!
