The duo from the Land of Fire enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sing at Goran Bregović’s concert, a musician and composer that has changed Balkan’s pop-culture forever and brought European music on a new level.

In fact Mr.Bregović performed as part of the opening Ceremony of the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade, as well as composed the Serbian entry for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest.

Eldar and Nigar sang their entry Running Scared and received a strong appreciation from more than 4500 thousand spectators of the concert.

 “We are speechless. I never thought we would meet Goran Bregović and Ruslana. For a moment I thought I was dreaming but now I understand – this is my dream and it became true today. Unbelievable feeling,” – said Eldar afterwards.


The duo also met with 2004 Eurovision Song Contest winner and one of the most beloved Ukrainian singers, Ruslana, who performed as a special guest at this concert.

The author of the 2004 winning song Wild Dances and holder of the World Music Awards as Best Selling Ukrainian Artist shared some advice about the upcoming competition with the duo.

"They are very pleasant and open guys. I think this duo has great potential to rock the Eurovision Song Contest stage even though their song is calm and romantic," - Ruslana claimed after her private conversation with Eldar & Nigar.
