Moldova 2017 - Ethno Republic & Surorile Osoianu - Discover Moldova

Everyone loves going to see their nan at the weekend, so we were especially glad when this bouncy little number made the last fourteen in Moldova. The latest in a long line of ethno-grans in the competition, it's a pleasing blend of rural folkisms and almost up-to-date pop (for Moldova) - but the new stuff never entirely smothers the charm of the old girls.

In a world where Bognibov misses out on qualification yet again, one can only hope that Ethno Republic fly the flag for regional colour - even if the more one dimensional quarters of fandom only have the language to compare it to the Russian Babushkas. These gals offer a much more authentic slice of small town life. Well, we call them nans, but to be honest they're not a whole lot older than me!
