The rumours are true: we have on our hands one major Eurovision collaboration! It all started with an idea from one person: Armenian-American artist Tamar Kaprelian, part of the pre-existing Armenia supergroup, Genealogy. In honour of the 60th Eurovision’s slogan, “Building Bridges”, Tamar has joined forces with fellow Genealogy members Stephanie Topalian & Mary-Jean O’Doherty, as well as Estonia’s Elina Born, Albania’s Elhaida Dani, and Greece’s Maria Elena Kyriakou!
wiwibloggs was lucky enough to be at the recording of the song, which took place today in Vienna. The six piece all-girl group will be singing a song entitled “The Otherside”, written by Tamar herself. The song really stirs emotion within you, with a great piano-led sound that is really inspiring. The song is about peace, love, and unity which really keeps up with the theme of “Building Bridges”.
Tamar said about the song “Music has the ability to bring people together…it unites and eliminates cultural differences. It is an honour that the girls agreed to be part of this.” Tamar also revealed in an exclusive interview (coming soon on wiwi.tv) that the entire concept came about after she started to talk to the girls on social media.
We spoke with the group at the recording session and you can view that video below. You can really feel the bond these six artists have with each other and it really is a great example of how Eurovision can bring such acts together. Bravo to Tamar for the idea and we cannot wait to hear the full version of the song, which will be released soon!
Just spoke to Tamar via Twitter. She told me that the song will be available in approx. two weeks.
When will the song come out?
My opinion of how they will al fit in the group:
Maria Elena: The older, more experienced one with the breath-taking voice.
Mary Jean: The Australian. (That’s a good thing btw theyre all positive).
Stephanie: The unique one.
Elhaida: The main vocalist.
Elina: The young one.
Tamar: The leader
ok omg that sucked so bad but im just really really excited
Makes me want to like Tamar and Maria Elena even more
I am so happy this is happening, good luck to all, and thanks Tamara
Bravo Tamar. Armenia go ahead. Estonia, Albania, Greece , happy to see you, good luck ladies
Awesome news! I always love when the artists interact with each other from diff countries and hope they continue to be friends and even work together again in future! Keep us posted wiwibloggs 🙂
Marco, Armenian girls would be happy to build bridges with Azeri artists and Armenian society would welcome that but if Azeri artists agree they will be condemned in Azerbaijan and announced as “traitors”…Sad but true, it happened several times. As an Armenian myself I would not mind if ESC fans bring forward such an idea and help to ease the tension. If Azerbaijani society see the pressure from Europe they might give in 🙂
Surprised no was mentioned where Inga is.
THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY AMAZING, BRB I’M GONNA DIE OF EXCITEMENT!!!!!!!
Tamar is INCREDIBLE <3 I'm so excited for a song with my Armenian glamazons teaming up with one of my favourite artists (Elhaida), one of the best young artists (Elina) and perhaps the best vocalist at the competition (Maria Elena). CAN'T WAIT <3
Poor Elhaida x’D.
Elhaida looks stunning in that photo #NOT
should sing a song like bang bang lol
The 4th girl looks photoshopped
Poor Edurne 🙁
Poor Edurne 🙁
I knew something fishy was going on, because all of them posted things on their Instagram pages like “Surprise Coming!” “Can’t Wait!” etc.
Erm, what´s wrong with Elhaida’s face in the group shot? It looks like someone photoshopped her face over someone else’e body lol.
Can’t wait to hear the song, it will be interesting for sure. They’re all great talents.
wow, this will be very interesting to see! so amazing that such a collab will come out of the competition this year 🙂
@marco, where was that seen?
Girl power <3
What would be really interesting and a huge “building bridges” were a collaboration between armenian and azeri artists. Maybe one day we will see it, just as we saw the nice encounter between the israeli delegation with the lebanese journalist/fan. That’s real eurovision spirit, y’all!
Hot girls, would not mind putting my hands on them 😉 🙂 Better then all those men this year.
Wow, these ladies are about to bring some power to the place. <3
Im super excited! Cant wait for it to be released!
