    Dear friends,

    Thanks a lot for the latest lives, feels great being back, we are looking forward to the next gigs.
    Also, we would like to assure you that we are doing our best to read all your messages, here on the website, but also on our profiles on various social networks. We thank you a lot for your kind appreciation and wishes.

    There are some frequently asked questions that we would like to answer:

    1. Who is the girl on the unicycle?
    Her name is Tatiana Ilescu, she's 21 years old, she's a professional circus artist, from a circus artists’ family. Tatiana’s skills do not limit to riding the monocycle, she is able to do a large number of other circus stunts. Additionally, she studies foreighn languages, at Moldova State University.

    2. Where can I get a Kushma/hat?
    The kushmas are custom-made, especially for the contest, thus ours are not for sale… yet :) We plan on wearing them during some of our gigs. Also, we are not thinking about producing more of them, for sale. But the good thing is that you can make your own kushma, either from faux karakul or from any material you think might suit. The shape of the kushma is so simple, you can do it ;)

    3. When will you play in the UK, Australia, Spain, Germany etc.?
    We'd love to play everywhere for you! All certain future gigs are listed on our GIGS page. We'll release the new album this autumn and then we'll have a planned promo tour, but for now we mostly play there where we are invited. So, waiting for your invitation ;) Suggest your local club or Festival to invite us.

    4. Where can I get an Erurovision/Zdob si Zdub T-shirt and the "So lucky" promo-CD?
    These T-shirts and promo-CDs were produced specifically for the Eurovision and they were distributed for free in the framework of the contest, for promotional purposes. We will think about maybe including the T-shirts in our merch that we'll have with the release of the new album.

    5. Where can I buy your CDs?
    It depends on the country you live in. Here are some links where you could buy online some of our albums:
    Russia and CIS, for example
    But you can also listen to some of our songs on our website – ALBUMS.

    6.What type of trumpet did you use in your show? It looked unsual, different…
    We have created this trumpet especially for our show in Dusseldorf. It is a decorative hybrid that was created from two trumpets. In order to play it, you need special skills… and we think only our trumpeter Valeriu has them :)

    7. Where is Grandma that was performing with you during Eurovision 2005?
    As before, she lives in the village, in the south of Moldova, and is engaged in folk arts, but also, together with her husband, takes care of their grandchildren and household. This year, she actively supported us, wishing us good luck, when we left for Düsseldorf.

    8. Do you plan to participate one more time in the Eurovision Song Contest?
    Both times we have spontaneously applied for participation in the contest, without any planning. In the future we want to continue this tradition, thus we do not exclude the possibility of a new participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. Time will tell :)

    If you have any other questions, ask, we will gladly try to answer them.

    The trashy Eurovision festival wasn't totally useless because I knew your music!
    It's a pity you don't play in Italy.
    Good luck

    Doina, in Moldova il poti procura la noi in oficiu, suna la 506367 sau 506366, in
    zilele de lucru de la 12 la 18.
    sau in magazinul asta ... din pacate nu mai avem marimea S
    pentru fete/femei (doar de tip barbatesc).

    Jesamine, it seems you have almost the same wish as Scott Mills from bbc radio 1
    ) and your picture is very nice ;))

    ciuvac zdupait, aici ne referim la albumul nou care inca nu a aparut, nu la
    "beloe vino / krasnoe vino".

    Janina, thanks! we will play a live gig - album release one - in Berlin, for
    sure. and of course we will write about it on the website... stay tuned, coming
    up this fall!

    Ry, on the website and on our profile on facebook etc we share links to various
    articles in the media, in various languages... unfortunately we are not able to
    translate them ... maybe you could use :)

    zdubiiiii, mersi pentru poze!

    Telebolla, you played in Italy and we will be back :)

    Thanks everybody!
