Today Armenian national broadcaster has introduced the Armenian team who will be performing on Eurovision 2016 stage.
Anushik Ter-Ghukasyan, Masha Mnjoyan (JESC 2008), Christina Mangasaryan, Sona Gyulkhasyan and LoveWave’s co-composer herself – Lilith Navasardyan will accompany Iveta Mukuchyan during her performances.
Lilith Navasardyan thanked the participants and said that it was very hard to find the perfect match, as some parts of the song were very challenging for most singers. The other names also feel so proud of being Eurovision part for their country.
What Did They Say About It?
Lilith said: “I’m so happy we have found our girls! All of them are very talented. They have great voices that suit this song perfectly. As for me, it was very surprising that I ended up not only creating this song, but also performing it as a backing vocal. I think the decision to include me was made because the draft version of the song was recorded with my voice and It seemed like my voice was always supposed to be there, just like the other instruments”
Anushik Ter-Ghukasyan said: “LoveWave is very experimental and that’s what I love about it. This wave is taking all of us out of space and time, making us come alive. I’m confident that our song will excite both the audience and the juries”
Masha Mnjoyan said: “LoveWave is such a powerful song. And Iveta is fabulous. I can’t wait to see what our team will come up with for the staging.”
Christina Mangasaryan said: “I like how this song is both modern and ethnic at the same time. I just love how modern beats blend in with traditional Armenian tunes. And the instrumental part is incredible. I never thought that Armenian zurna could sound so melodiously”
Sona Gyulkhasyan said: “I was very excited with AMPTV’s choice to send Iveta to Eurovision. I was really waiting for the song premiere, and as soon as I heard it, I had only one word in mind… WOW!”
