It seems so long ago now, but it was only back in December that Eneda Tarifa was the very first Eurovision 2016 singer to reveal her song. Now, “Përrallë” has undergone the traditional reworking that we see from Albania every year. With the revamp complete, it’s time to reveal the official Albanian entry for Eurovision 2016. Eneda Tarifa will fly the Albanian flag in Stockholm with the song “Fairytale”.
The song has been written by Olsa Toqi, with the revamp taking place at the Woodstock Studios in London. Eneda kept things close to home for the video though, which was filmed on location in Albania.
Eneda Tarifa – “Fairytale”
The official video clip showcases lovely Albanian nature and clocks. It sounds very similar to original Albanian version, but sounds less dramatic. Eneda Tarifa is fierce with all those different dresses, hand gestures. Just when she looks at you, she wants to enter your soul.
We also know a little bit more about Eneda’s promotional tour for the Eurovision Song Contest. She’s already confirmed to be at the Eurovision in Concert (and we’ll be there too, y’all). It’s also believed she will be in attendance at the Moscow Eurovision Party as well. This is a girl who knows to work the promo circuit!
Of course, it was with Përrallë that Eneda won Festivali i Këngës 54. Much as we see every year, there will no doubt be debate as to which version is better. Make sure to let us know whether you prefer the new version of “Fairytale” in the comments and via our Twitter page.
