Eurovision 2023: First Rehearsal of Moldova!
Today is the first day of rehearsals, the day when the countries participating in the First Semi Final will take over the stage for their first rehearsal at M&S Bank Arena, in Liverpool!
Next up on stage for their first rehearsal is Moldova and Pasha Parfeny with the song “Soarele Şi Luna“.
Who is Pasha Parfeny?
Eurovision runs through Pasha Parfeni’s veins, having been involved with multiple national final songs in Moldova, as well as representing the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2012, where he finished 11th.
The following year, he joined forces with his wife Yuliana to compose Moldova’s entry “O Mie for Aliona Moon“. Aliona had been a backing vocalist for Pasha in 2012, and this time he took to the Eurovision stage to accompany her on the piano.
There’s so much to love about this performance from Moldova – the huge drums, Sergiu the epic flute guy, Pasha’s atmospheric vocals, the two backing singers with huge horned headdresses.
It’s the kind of ethno-banger we used to see a lot more often at Eurovision, and all together it creates a performance that’s pulsing through the arena floor. This is going to go BIG in the Liverpool arena next Tuesday.
Below you can watch a small clip from the Moldovan first rehearsal, once it’s published on TikTok:
