Introducing 2012: Moldova!

All the entries for the 2012 contest have been selected and now My Eurovision Diary will introduce them to you!

Entrant: Pasha Parfeny

Pasha Parfeny’s real name is Pavel Parfeny. The artist has a big musical experience behind him. He participated in different national and international festivals where he almost always took first place. In his country, he is known as Pasha Parfeny or simply Pasha.

Pasha Parfeny was born on May 30th, 1986 in Moldova. Music has always played an important role in his life. Pasha’s parents who are both musicians have always supported his musical career. Pasha’s mother was a piano teacher at the music school of the city of Orhei. His father was a singer and guitarist.

Pasha Parfeny started his musical career at the age of seven, studying classical piano at the music school. In 2002 he entered Tiraspol Music College where he gained a lot of experience as a vocalist. Later on, in 2006, Pasha Parfeny continued his musical studies at the State Academy of Music, Theatre and Fine Arts where he tried himself as a composer.

Pasha is also known as a former member of the band Sunstroke Project. 2009 the band with Pasha Parfeny as the vocalist participated in the Moldovan Eurovision qualifying contest where they came third with their songNo Crime. In late autumn 2010, Pasha’s contract expired and he left the band. In 2010, the singer participated in the Moldovan national selection with his song You Should Like and finished second.

Entry: Lăutar (Traditional Musician)

Although the song is completely sung in English, the title is in Romanian, the song was composed by Pasha Parfeny, Alex Brashovean and penned by Pasha Parfeny. The song was selected through Selecita Nationala Moldova as well as Pasha. This will be the 8th Molodvan entry in the Eurovision, so far Moldova has only missed the final once, when in 2008 Geta Burlacu and ‘Century of Love’ didn’t managed to qualify for the Grand Final.

Tomorrow we will introduce the Irish entry, note that the entries will be introduced according to the running order!

  1. I admit that Pasha only has a very limited command of English pronunciation but this unfortunate fact is much less damaging in a folksy Balkans fun song than it is in a big ballad like Belarus 2010 or a serious effort like Switzerland this year f. e. In fact, one might argue that the bad English adds to the local flavor of the song in this specific case. I am madly in love with both the melody and the orchestration and will certainly get up and dance when Moldova comes up in May. 8/12 and 14th place on my pre-rehearsals list.

  2. HORROR, I simply can’t believe somebody is able to make smth like that and even less there is somebody in this World who likes this! I’m SHOCKED to DEATH!!
    Even worse thing is that Moldova is turning into country which gives VERY BAD reputation to this festival! 3 years in a row it’s completely EMBARRASSING and 0/10! WITHDRAW please…or be normal FOE GOD’S SAKE! :/

  3. And please Eurovision dictionary make 0 option in the poll, because I refuse to give 1 point to this SHITE!!! :/

    @ Toggie
    I’m so curious tp o see how somebody can dance to this HORROR! lol 😀

  4. Nicoleta Dara had good English and could get into final easily and not embarrass Moldova like this! :/ INAYA as well…

  5. And if Romania gives 12 to him this year, ESC will touch the bottom, I hardly can believe it can sink deeper after that!:( :/ That will be MORE than a SHAME!
