New song for Esma & Lozano announced
Due to the public criticism, MKRTV, the broadcaster of FYR Macedonia has decided to change the previously announced entry Imperija to another song. Tonight, Esma & Lozano presented their new act called Pred Da Se Razdeni that means Before The Dawn.
The music of Esma & Lozano’s new entry Pred Da Se Razdeni has been written by Lazar Cvetoski, Darko Dimitrov and Simeon Atanasov. The singer of FYR Macedonia Magdalena Cvetovska-Ena has written the lyrics. Darko Dimitrov is no stranger in the Eurovision history. He composed the entry Ninanajna for Elena Risteska in the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest and arranged the entry of Anja Veterova in the 2010 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
The main idea of the song is to emphasize Esma & Lozano’s vocals and their musical talents. That’s why it combines modern elements performed by Lozano and parts of Gypsy music sung by Esma.
"We found a way how to get the maximum from vocal capabilities of Esma and Lozano. This is a modern song with some elements of Roma music, that made Esma so popular and a well known artist. We combined two different styles and what we got in the end is a song that will represent our country in a very decent way. Esma's name, her style and quality in the performance of Roma music is very known worldwide. But Lozano is an amazing singer, too. All together, it will be a perfect way to represent FYR Macedonia in Malmö", the Head of Delegation, Ljupcho Mirkovski said.
