For the second year Latvia is using the new style Dziesma national final to select its entry to the Eurovision Song Contest. With the semi-finals behind us and the finals looming on the horizon, we took the chance to catch up with some of the performers taking part and we had the good luck a few days ago of speaking to half of Aarzemnieki; Singer and Guitarist Jöran and Violinist and backing vocalist Katrina Dimanta.
Listen to the audio below:
Jöran proved quite knowledgeable of Eurovision’s history and not at all afraid to use his guitar! Check out some of the songs he performed during the interview that we had to cut, but felt were too good to lose here:
Aarzemnieki, along with 11 other acts take part in the final of Dziesma 2014 this Saturday. See their semi-final performance of ‘Cake to Bake’ below! On behalf of all the team at escXtra I would like to thank both Jöran and Katrina for speaking with us once again and wish them and the rest of the band all the best with Dziesma and whatever may be next!
