Moldova’s Zdob si Zdub & Advahov Brothers “Trenuletul” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: Those familiar with Zdob si Zdub’s two previous Eurovision appearances will already be prepared to expect the unexpected. And while there is most definitely plenty of crazy, it doesn’t quite match the heights of the drumming granny or the pointy hatted unicyclist from 2005 and 2011 respectively. Nonetheless, there’s plenty of madness to go around. The arena is filled with warm pinks and yellows while the two brothers peddle their upbeat Moldovan folk in matching black and white suits. There’s also a fun rock n’ roll moment when the guitarist gets down on his knees and lies backwards on the floor. As he does so, the staging resembles a tube map. Oddly, besides a choo, choo at the end, there are few other references to the train around which the song is based. One can only assume that the broken LED might have provided a bit more loco-locomotive.
