Just over a month to go before some of the kitschest, the campest and the most colourful music in the world takes to the stage in Oslo for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. Once again, the competition is broken down into two semi finals (on May 25 and 27) and the grand final on May 29. And we continue our look at some of the entries that will compete for European music’s ultimate prize.
LITHUANIA : InCulto – East European Funk
It’s not often that you hear the good ol’ kazoo in a piece of music these days, but Eurovision’s Lithuanian entry InCulto look like bringing the trusty plastic wind instrument back to the masses with their track ‘East European Funk’. The five piece has been around for six years in their homeland, but haven’t released anything for three years – until now. The gents all look like they could get up to some mischief in the clip – and it’s more than 40 seconds in before we hear anything but vocal acrobatics and kazoo. It’s totally likeable, if not a little on the repetitive side.
