TuralTuranXIt’s not often that an artist can say their first big gig was the Eurovision Song Contest, but twins Tural and Turan Baghmanov will soon be saying exactly that.
The boys have always loved music, and influenced from a young age by their father, they decided to start a band - The Red Jungle.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic it proved tough to find gigs at first, and so with no opportunity to perform in concert halls, the brothers decided to make the world their stage. They headed to the squares and parks of Baku, performing on the streets and drawing in their own audiences.
Inspired by ‘60s and ‘70s music and styles, the boys applied to represent Azerbaijan at Eurovision “simply to try, as fortune favours the brave.” It certainly does. The twins were chosen with their song Tell Me More, which they co-wrote with friends Nihad Aliyev and Tunar Taghiyev.
