Slovenia: Slove’n’aid enlists ESC power in humanitarian cause

by Alex Stewart 246 views

Slove’n’aid is the first official Slovenian “band aid” supergroup featuring 16 established Slovenian artists. The group has recently released a video for their new song En svet (One World), with the aim to raise awareness and promote Slovenia’s Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid.

Slove’n’aid features some of the most popular musicians from Slovenia including many Slovenian Eurovision veterans such as Darja Švajger (Dublin, 1995; Jerusalem, 1999), Eva Boto (Baku, 2012), Nuša Derenda (Copenhagen, 2001) and Omar Naber (Kiev, 2005) have all represented Slovenia country at the contest. Katja Koren has sung background vocals for Slovenia three times (in 2006 with Anžej Dežan, in 2011 with Maja Keuc and in 2012 with Eva Boto) and many others have taken part in EMA, the Slovenian national Eurovision selection, over the past few years (among them, Alya holds the record having participated in EMA six times between 2003 and 2015). This information was sourced very kindly from the the Slove’n’aid PR Team.

The press release from Slove’n’aid goes on to tell us that the song En svet (One World) was written and produced by Žiga Pirnat, who co-wrote Time to Rise in the Irish Eurosong 2008, Shine in the Ukrainian Eurovision in 2010 and Twilight in the Romanian Eurovision in 2012. The last two songs were co-written by Andraž Gliha who also produced the video for En svet.

The project En svet was supported by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is part of the European Year of Development so it is with immense pride to see so many Slovenian Eurovision veterans participating in this fantastic effort to raise humanitarian aid.
