Zdob şi Zdub are a band who have become just as infamous for their spectacular live shows, as they have for their catchy, sing-along tunes.

The band have been around since 1994, honing their craft with a near constant schedule of gigs, tours and festival appearances, and managing to release 10 albums in the process.

Their debut at Eurovision was also Moldova’s very first outing at the Contest, at which Zdob și Zdub gave their nation a 6th place finish with the song Boonika Bate Toba. They were back again in 2011 with So Lucky, progressing to the grand final once more and giving Moldova a 12th place result to be proud of.

The band will be joined in Turin by the Advahov Brothers: two musicians who are so popular in Moldova, they even have their own folk orchestra, frequently playing at sold-out events across their country. Zdob şi Zdub & Advahov Brothers plan on releasing a whole album of material together.

Lyrics of Trenulețul

The train’s going, just like flying From one country to another It is going but confused: What's the country? Are they fused? Is it old or is it new? Seems like one, but also two Both together and apart Are there two? Or just one part? Hey ho, Let’s go! Folklore and Rock ‘n’ roll. The train’s route is East to West Chisinau – Bucharest! Both in that land and in this We dance hora - it's a bliss And in each country within Magic's made with violin When the train gets to a stand Feels like almost the same land Feels like went without a change Home-to-home. What an exchange! Hey ho, Let's go! Folklore and Rock ‘n’ roll. The train’s route is East to West Chisinau – Bucharest! Going quickly, going good Train of our nationhood But it cannot comprehend What’s the country? Where’s the end? Is it old or is it new? Seems like one, but also two Both together and apart Are there two? Or just one part? Hey ho, Let's go! Folklore and Rock ‘n’ roll. The train's route is East to West Chisinau – Bucharest!
Merge trenul, parcă zboară, Dint-o țară-n altă țară. Merge și nu poate pricepe: Care țară? Unde-ncepe? Țară veche, țară nouă, Parcă-i una, parcă-s două. Ba aparte, ba-mpreună, Parcă-s două, parcă-i una. Hey how! Let’s go! Folklore și Rock’n’roll. Pleacă trenul! Unde esti? Chisinău – București. Și-ntr-o țară, și-n cealaltă Joacă hora laolaltă. Și în fiecare țară Face farmece vioara. Când ajunge trenu-n gară, Parcă n-a ieșit din țară, Parcă-a mers, fără să iasă, De acasă pân-acasă. Hey how! Let’s go! Folklore și Rock’n’roll Pleacă trenul! Unde esti? Chisinău – București.
