THE GREAT TRIUMPH OF UKRAINE: Winning in Eurovision … From the podium straight to the fight! – Topky.sk

-

The five-member formation defeated another 24 contestants in the finals of this largest music event of its kind in the world. The decisive factor was the votes of the audience, who expressed support for Ukraine during the Russian occupation. The Kalush Orchestra combines folk motifs with modern sounds in its work, using various folk instruments. The group is named after the western Ukrainian city of Kalush. The lyrics of the author’s composition “Stefania” are conceived as an ode to the mother. “Even if all roads are destroyed, I will always find my way home,” reads one of the verses of the winning song. The lyrics are in Ukrainian only. The song’s statement was given an emotional context in light of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, which began just two days after the group accepted an offer to perform at Eurovision. Ukraine was originally supposed to be represented by singer Alina Pasova. However, she resigned after it became clear that in 2015 she entered the territory of the Moscow-occupied Crimean Peninsula from the Russian side, which Kiev considers illegal. Russia and its close ally Belarus were excluded from the current year of Eurovision in connection with the war in Ukraine. The 66th Eurovision Song Contest took place on 10-14. May in the Italian city of Turin, as the Italian rock band Maneskin won last year in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The competition took place in the multi-purpose arena Pala Alpitour. Ukraine has won Eurovision twice before – in 2004, singer Ruslana triumphed with the song “Wild Dances” and in 2016, singer Jamal with the song “1944”.

After the performance, the frontman of this five-member group, Oleh Psiuk, called from the stage in English: “Please help Ukraine and Mariupol! Help Azovstala now!” Psiuk later thanked everyone who voted for his Russian-occupied homeland at the competition. “This victory is very important for Ukraine, especially this year. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Glory to Ukraine!” Psiuk told reporters. Members of the Kalush Orchestra have received special permission from the Ukrainian government to travel and participate in Eurovision, as men of fighting age are prohibited from leaving the country. Their permit expires in two days. According to his own words, Psiuk is not quite sure what awaits his band, as war is raging in Ukraine. “Like all Ukrainians, we are ready to fight to the end,” he said.
