After releasing the lyric video for their latest single Din toata inima last month, Voltaj dropped the official video today. Using similar imagery which highlights the beauty of Romania, the band pays tribute to their home country. Fans have already branded it as the new pop anthem for the Eastern European country.
Shot over six days this summer from the Black Sea to the Carpathians, going through the Danube Delta and the unique Turda Saline, the images paint quite a picturesque tourist ad for the country. Throughout the video, a flag is passed from person to person — including Ivan Patzaichin, a former Olympic canoer, and Andrei Rosu, the first Romanian to swim across the English Channel. It eventually reaches the country’s highest mountain peak, from where it dominates the landscape. We can also see images from a major Voltaj gig by the seaside, which gives us an idea about the incredible popularity of the Romanian pop-rock band.
The patriotic song is not a first for Voltaj. Their entry for Eurovision Song Contest 2015, De la capat, was also heavily influenced for the love of its Romanian people, particularly the children left behind by parents forced to work abroad:
