Armenia’s AMPTV has revealed that Ethiopian-Armenian singer Vahe Tilbian is the second member of Genealogy, its Eurovision Supergroup for Vienna. Speaking of the news, the singer said:

I am extremely honored, humbled and ecstatic to let you all know that I will be one of 6 artists to represent Armenia at the Eurovision song contest this year in Vienna, Austria. I know you will all continue to support and encourage me along this bridge building journey of 6 destinies with 1 story. Peace, Love and Music to you all.

About Vahe Tilbian

Vahe is a one hunderd percent Armenian, but he was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. His music cannot be described by one word. He sings in different styles: rock, R&B, reggae, techno, Armenian, Ethiopian and even Latin music. He was nominated for a number of Armenian music awards, and in 2012 he released his album “Mixology”, which brought him a lot of success internationally.

About Genealogy

Earlier in February AMPTV revealed that Genealogy will unite various members of the Armenian Diaspora. Five of the acts will come from abroad — and more specifically Asia, Africa, Australia, Europe and North America — while a sixth will represent the Motherland Armenia. This is represented visually through a forget-me-not flower, which marks the centenary of the Armenian Genocide. Its five petals represent five of members of the Armenian Diaspora, while the centre represents the artist in Armenia.

The following map teases the artists’ current location, and led us to speculate that Essai, Inga Arshakyan, Tamar Kaprelian, Athena Manoukian, Vahe Tilbian, and Stephanie Topalian make up the group. So far, we’ve gotten three right, with only Athena proving to be a false lead.

I’m kinda glad Athena isn’t the Australian member as I never thought it really fit. Sure she might live there now but she’s really just a Greek Armenian. I don’t think she holds Australian citizenship or anything. Really has me wondering who Australia’s member will be then. As for Vahe, don’t really care for him. I had low expectations for Genealogy when they were announced but as the members are being revealed my expectations are lowering and lowering. “Don’t Deny” also sounds like it’ll be an incredibly passive aggressive song.

does anyone except for Armenians actually care about picking artists? I mean what I don’t understand is why are they making such a big deal out of this, since these people aren’t actually famous; an Armenian friend of mine doesn’t know them either. So… WHY? Just let us hear the song and stop teasing

I guess they’re saving Australia for last (sans the Armenia one) since it’s the only ‘unspoiled’ one now lmao.

This guessing game sure feels like it’s a contest of its own.
