Italian duo Jalisse didn’t win Eurovision in 1997, but their song “Fiumi di parole” placed fourth on the night and captured the hearts of countless Eurovision fans. The international success of their song encouraged them to keep on creating good music.

Last summer, the duo, consisting of Alessandra Drusian and Fabio Ricci, launched  the Song of the Knight Project in which they invited their fans to submit lyrics for their new single. Participants had a list of light motifs — revolving around chivalry — that had to be mentioned throughout the song. The result is one of Jalisse’s more upbeat songs – “L’ alchimista, per sempre tuo cavaliere” (The Alchemist, Forever Your Knight).

Now they’re at it again. This summer they are calling on amateur authors and poets over the age of 18 to express the word “LIGHT” in lyrical form. The inspiration comes from the United Nations, which has declared 2015 The International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies. Sexy, eh?

The contest is only open to amateurs — so no one tied to any record labels, agencies or any other musical, producing or editorial societies.

The official announcement, rules and registration info can be found on the LSC’s official website HERE and HERE.

The lyrics must be in Italian, English or Spanish. All the materials MUST be submitted by June 30 at 11:00pm CET to the e-mail address  [email protected]

The winning lyrical poem will be set to life as a song – composed and interpreted by Jalisse!

Jalisse and wiwibloggs wish all the participants good luck! Viva la musica!

Hmm. I gotta watch ESC 1997.

I like the idea and here’s hoping that Wiwibloggs will let us know of the finished product – the song itself!

@ I do not think that its like they do not want to bother spending money on that project..
Competitions like that are taking place many times..

This procedure makes it more special & beautiful..
It has the sense of amatuer & not too staged & pretentious…So it will seem more genuine & personal..
