DARIA : Celebrate
Pop/jazz chanteuse Daria Kinzer brings a rather international flavour to Croatia’s official entry for Eurovision this year. She was born in Germany, raised in Austria and speaks both German and Croatian. And two months ago today, she got the nod from the Croatian people to represent them in the first semi final, to be held in Dusseldorf on Tuesday.
The track? Well it’s about as far away from jazz as you possibly go. It features almost trance-like instrumentation at the beginning, before bursting into a chorus that unashamedly pop. There’s also a key change right towards the end, so you can’t help but give them extra points for that.
And heads-up Eurovision fans… The fab team at EMI has given us five copies of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest album to give away to you. Keep your eyes peeled for the giveaway to go live tomorrow!
