Событие в городе

Галина Шкода (Ultramarine Girls)

Некоторые наиболее преданные поклонники Евровидения без труда вспомнят Галину Шкоду, участницу молдавских национальных отборов на конкурс Евровидение 2008-2010 с песнями "Your Own Vision", "Joc De Noroc" и "Actori".

В 2010 году Галина перебралась в Украину, где стала главной звездой музыкального театра "Comme il faut" и принимала участие в его многочисленных постановках.

С 2010 года она также поет в кавер-бенде "Some like it hot", который с 2014 года был переименован в "Ultramarine Girls"

В этом году Шкода приняла участие в украинской версии шоу "Голос".

Поскольку мы пытаемся осветить все мероприятия, так или иначе связанные с конкурсом Евровидение, ESCKAZ не мог пройти мимо выступления Галины Шкоды и Ultramarine Girls (Мария Сорокина, ударные, Марта Ковальчук, бас-гитар, Ульяна Гуда, клавишные). Мы долго пытались подобрать удобную дату выступления коллектива, и в итоге смогли услышать их сегодня в Solod enjoy bar.

Коротко пообщавшись с Галиной после выступления, мы рассказали ей, что по ней давно скучают в кругах Евровидения, и что мы были бы рады вновь увидеть ее в числе участников национальных отборов от Молдовы или Украины. Надеемся, что продюсеры и композиторы заметят ее потрясающий талант. Вебсайт группы: https://ultramarinegirlsband.com/

We were invited to the pre-press event this evening and after a brief press conference we had an opportunity to have a quick chat with the artists who were there. Complimentary food and drink was served for all the invited guests and they all seemed to then have great fun taking selfies…

United Kingdom Embassy Reception in Kyiv - with Lucie Jones and Emmelie de Forest

United Kingdom Embassy Reception

ESCKAZ.com were again fortunate to receive an invite to the UK embassy reception in the host city this year. Held in the grounds of the Embassy they guest list included some a lot of the local VIPs from the area, so mainly staff from other embassies - we spotted several - and of course the UK press and journalists attending Eurovision this year

All guests were welcomed by the United Kingdom Ambassador, Ms Judith Gough, herself resplendent in a sequinned United Kingdom dress, and treated to excellent complimentary food and drink while waiting for Lucie Jones to arrive

United Kingdom Embassy Reception

We mixed with several of the press and gathered VIPs and then Lucie arrived. After a short speech by the Ambassador, Lucie sang her Eurovision song, Never Give Up On You, and in a great moment was then joined on stage by Emmelie de Forest, Eurovision winner from 2013, and they sang a duet arrangement of Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars….but only after they took their shoes off; Clips here



Lucie then gave us a rendition of That’s Life and finally left the stage...

We had a chance to then have a quick chat with Lucie Jones in the garden and also had a quick chat to Emmelie de Forest; Both clips here


Lucie Jones will perform in Saturday night’s Grand Final for Eurovision 2017 and we are hopeful that this year will see a return to the left hand side of the scoreboard - well she at least deserves this in our opinion…

День с O.Torvald (Украина)

Сегодня представители украинской и крупнейшей международной прессы были приглашены на тур с группой O.Torvald, который включал в себя посещение "Barman Dictat", комплекса Arena City complex и крыши ТРЦ Gulliver.

"Barman Dictat" (в котором ранее размещался легендарный арт-клуб 44) - это именно та площадка, на которой O.Torvald дали свое первое выступление в Киеве, и которая по сей день остается любимой сценой коллектива. Женя Галич и его команда (в которой, к сожалению, отсутствовал приболевший бас-гитарист) спела со сцены три песни, включая последние хиты #нашiлюдивсюди и Твой дух, твое оружие, и выпили с представителями прессы несколько горячительных напитков.

Специальными гостями стали проект Bandura Style (Ярослав Джусь и Марина Круть), которые только вчера выпустили свой кавер на песню Time на Youtube, а утром уже были замечены Женей и немедленно приглашены в Киев.

После небольшой прогулки мы достигли локации Евроклуба 2005 Arena City, где группа встретилась со своими поклонниками (-цами), которые успели собраться в достаточно большом количестве, хотя были извещены о встрече всего за час до ее начала. Группа раздала автографы и сделала множество селфи.

Завершился тур тем, что музыканты и пресса взобрались на 34й этаж ТРЦ Gulliver - 2го по высоте здания Киева, чтобы насладиться открывающимся оттуда видом и в неформальной обстановке обсудить происходящее на конкурсе.

Irish Reception in Kyiv

Irish Reception in Kyiv

The now traditional Irish Party at Eurovision took place last night at O’Brien’s Pub in Kyiv. Bang in the heart of the City, close to the Maidan Nezalezhnosti this jolly little bit of Ireland in Ukraine was the perfect venue for the press an delegations to gather and mix while catching up with performances from the Irish singer, Brendan Murray

In typical Irish hospitality the invited delegations and press were treated to complimentary food and drink and had an opportunity to meet with Brendan and his team behind Dying To Try. We spotted the teams from Malta, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and probably missed many many more.

Irish Reception in Kyiv

Then it was time for some traditional Irish music from a local band, we didn’t their name - sorry for that - but they got the crowd going and most of the delegations there danced - or attempted to dance - Irish style….you can watch the clip here;

A special treat were two performances from the Irish Backing Singers, Allison Vard Miller and Margot Daly;


Finally it was time for Brendan to take to the stage and perform for every one and the clips can be found here;





The one highlight was that he made the Serbian singer cry with his performance of Dying To Try and then she decided to sing the Adele song “Someone Like You”; clip here

You can also check all out photos from the event here;
