MOLDOVA : Nelly Ciobanu – Hora Din Moldova
This year’s Moldovan entry for Eurovison is the Dance For Moldova! Performed by 34 year old Moldovan singer Nelly Ciobanu, the video clip opens with shots of some of the country’s scenery and traditional dance, before bursting to life in a blaze of trumpets and percussion. It’s highly infectious, fun and is an effective way of showcasing some of the amazing things Moldova has to offer.
