Many of us live by the mantra, “You can do it, put your back into it!” But San Marino’s Senhit goes further. This audio-visual queen also puts passion, production and plenty of pizzaz into every project.
And so it goes with her latest adventure: Senhit’s “FREAKY TRIP TO ROTTERDAM”. This is a lush, lavish project that will see her pay tribute to selected songs from the back catalogue of the Eurovision Song Contest. She’ll unveil a new video every month until Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam. No passports needed — this scheme is most definitely open borders!

Working with artistic director Luca Tommassini — the genius behind Senhit’s “FREAKY!” video and many a scene for Madonna — she’ll once again encourage everyone to unleash the freak within. It’s a celebration of European music which will let the “Freaky Queen” once again bring people together — just as she did with her #freakydance at the height of the European pandemic.
The ﬁrst video of the project comes out on Wednesday 15 July and will pay homage to Belarus’ 2014 entry “Cheesecake” from TEO. Senhit promises “unpredictable implications” — something made very clear in this electric trailer!
Her team says: “Each month a different song will be reinterpreted by her, with the artistic direction of Luca Tommasini, becoming not a simple video clip but a real work of art. In each video, Senhit will make a transformation in look and style, wrapped in a reﬁned and unique scenography.”
