Gala Dragot: “Both songs have a strong personal meaning for me”| Exclusive Interview |

Following the announcement of her participation in this year’s national final of Belgium, Eurosong 2023, Gala Dragot speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun’s, Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolis Matamis.

Gala is among the finalists of this years Eurosong and she will try to represent her country in Eurovision 2023 with one of her two songs, Emotion Ollie or T’lnquiete.

Gala Aliaj Dragot explained that when her label heard about the open call for Eurovision 2023 in Belgium, they suggested that she should send some demos and of course she liked the idea of getting to Eurovision.

About the two songs she is competing on the national final she told us:

“These song were not written especially for Eurovision! I wrote them when I was 15 years old, but I never had the opportunity to release them. Now I feel is the right moment and I feel they fit perfectly to me and also to Eurovision!”

“Both songs have a strong personal meaning for me and everyone will find something about themselves on those lyrics!”

When Gala was asked if she prefers one of her two songs, she said:

“Ιt’s difficult, because these are both my babies and I love them so much but I think I have a preference on T’lnquiete, because it has beautiful strings and It’s more Eurovision!”

Then, she told us that among the other entries of the national final of Belgium her favourites are Hunter Falls with “Ooh La La”, “Nail” by Gustaph and Cherine.

She talked about her experience on winning “The Voice Kids” and how much it helped her to realise that she loves music.

“I’ve always known that I love music, to write music and also sing, but before The Voice it wasn’t clear to me”

Also, Gala talked about her Albanian roots and how much she loves going back to Albania her artistic family was mentioned during the interview. Gala expressed her love for Greece, cause she visits the country for her vacation in Halkidiki and Thessaloniki, but also a big part of her family lives in Greece and her parents actually lived in Greece and speak the language.
