Things you should know about Naviband

What are the most interesting aspects about your entry?

It is the first time that an entry in the Eurovision Song Contest will be performed in Belarusian language. This year our nation is 800 years old. For us it is symbolic and meaningful, because we want to tell the history of our country, our culture and traditions through our song. The Belarusian city of Polotsk is the geographical centre of Europe.

Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?

We are talismans for each other.

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?

We are young musicians, our team is only three years old. We sing in our native language. All we want is during these three minutes to share our native language with Europe.

Lyrics

Belarussian (Original)

Колькі дзён, колькі спатканняў Новыя вобразы і гарады Шэраг падзей нас пакідае У сэрцы трымаем, ідзем далей
Гісторыя майго жыцця Будзе свяціць яшчэ ярчэй У нашай крыві сонца зайграе Уся прыгажосць тваіх вачэй
Дзе будзеш ты, я адшукаю Яркія моманты знойдзем хутчэй Сённяшні дзень стане пачаткам Новых жаданняў, лепшых ідэй
Гісторыя майго жыцця Будзе свяціць яшчэ ярчэй У нашай крыві сонца зайграе Уся прыгажосць тваіх вачэй

English

How many days, how many love dates New images and towns The chain of events is falling behind us We keep it in our hearts and walk on
The story of my life Will shine even brighter The sun will sparkle in our blood And all the beauty of your eyes
I'll seek you out wherever you may be We'll discover the bright moments quicker Today will give birth To new desires and better ideas
The story of my life Will shine even brighter The sun will sparkle in our blood And all the beauty of your eyes
