Since January 15th, the public broadcaster of North Macedonia had informed us that Vasil Gargaliev will represent the country at the 65th Eurovision Contest!
This is the fifth consecutive year that Northern Macedonia chooses to participate by direct assignment. Vasil is familiar with the Contest since they were on Tamara Todevska’s vocal team last year.
Vasil’s song is titled “You” and is a creation by both Nevenska and Kalina Neshkoska and Alice Shrader.
Who is Vasil Garganliev
Vasil Garganliev began his musical journey at the age of 7, playing at one of the most popular children’s festivals in Northern Macedonia. Shortly thereafter, he moved with his family to the United States, where he continued his career as a soloist at the Chicago Children’s Choir.
He has given many recitals at music festivals around the world and has collaborated with some of the most renowned artists. The motto of Vasil’s life is simple: whenever words fail, sing.
Since returning to Northern Macedonia in 2018, Vasil has released 3 very successful singles: Gjerdan, Patuvam and Mojata Ulic. His first personal concert in his hometown in November 2019 was sold out.
