Peace, unity and tolerance - that will be the key message of the Armenian entry in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest. Inspired by the symbol of a forget-me-not flower and of Building Bridges, the slogan of the contest, a wholly new concept was born.
Taking into account numerous requests of the Armenian diaspora, five musicians from Europe, Asia, America, Africa, and Australia, all of Armenian origin, will be part of the band Genealogy. The idea is to unite a new generation of Armenians on stage whose families once spread all over the world in the year 1915.

The stage name of the project in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest will be Genealogy, and they will sing Don't Deny.
The first member of the band will be announced on February 16. Stay with Eurovision.tv to be among the first to know!

Did you know?

It's not the first time Armenia is being represented by an act that refers to its globally spread diaspora:
In 2010, Eva Rivas sang Apricot Stone in Oslo - a song refering to Armenians living far from home, feeling their strong links and longing to the far-away motherland.
Like the forget-me-not flower in this year's entry, the apricot is also a heavy symbol for Armenians - the fruit even gave its color to one part of the Armenian flag!
