ESC 2016 UKRAINE: THE FIRST REHEARSAL

Jamala is on stage with two backing singers. She hasn't yet decided which dress to wear but she's in blac today, with a new hairstyle. But that's not important she says, but the song. In the end of the performance in the backgroud there's a tree that symbolizes life and memory. As we know the song is about her grandmother but not only, it's to remember the roots. She enters the stage through a tunnel of moving clouds, the cebter floor is illuminated by imaginative flows of energy. It is said the press center fell silent during her performance, goosebumps and chills everywhere. This is a show stopper. Tasteful and beautiful, yet complex staging that works wonders. And of course we have Jamala's voice. Difficult to explain, amazing to watch as someone said. Some say this will give a run of their money for Russia or anyone else in the winning game. This blogger agrees.
Jamala brought in a full house for her Meet & Greet. She loves real music, not empty songs. Music with real roots and emotions. Her day didn't start well as she was informed her dresses were lost. Stress! But in the end they were found so all's fine now. Did you know she studies as an opera singer?  She even had an audition in La Scala seven years ago! No wonder she has that amazing technic! Then she explains what freedom means to her. Talk continues with Turkey, spontanity vs. Eurovision performance where everything is decided beforehand. She likes Loreen, Raphael Gualazzi and The Common Linnets, just to name a few. Nina Simone, Billie Holiday..... she could talk hours about artists who influenced her. Check out the whole affair in the viceo at the bottom of this post.
