Pasha Parfeni runs for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with an entry that reaffirms his status as a passionate advocate for his nation’s music traditions and dance rhythms. The song ‘My Wine’ that Pasha Parfeni wrote together with his London based co-author, Victoria Demici, was prophetically launched concurrently with Moldova being shortlisted by a British tourist company among 10 best wine destinations for 2020.
‘My Wine’ official music video features Pasha wearing an outfit decorated with traditional Moldovan costumes elements. The artist is dancing together with the folk-dance band Romanita, alongside mythical characters embodying symbols of Moldovan winter holidays and wedding traditions. The music video was filmed in the cellars of Milestii Mici, the world’s largest underground wine cave, according to the Guinness Book.
The authors of the song confessed that it’s not just Pasha’s unquestionable talent that they want to stage in Rotterdam. Their mission is more meaningful and impactful than its successes. The songwriters aim at promoting Moldova as a touristic attraction and trust that with the help of their fellow Europeans, they can contribute to scrapping the cliché definition of Moldova is the poorest country in Europe.
The authors of My Wine, whose songs have previously represented Moldova on various international stages, believe that they make a fortunate tandem in creating hits, and this should bring them double luck in Rotterdam.
Pasha Parfeni participated in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest with his song ‘Lautar’ qualifying for the finals by ranking 5th in the semi-finals. He is now promising a performance in Rotterdam that his country will be proud of.
