Urban Symphony, Estonian representatives in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, spoke to esctoday.com. The band centers around 20-year-old lead singer and violinist Sandra Nurmsalu, who became famous through the popular show Kaks takti etti, which also launched the careers of many other Estonian Eurovision Song Contest representatives. She is joined by viola player Mann Helstein, cellist Johanna Mängel and cellist Mari Möldre.

The band spoke about their participation and the ongoing rehearsals. They will represent Estonia at number 18 in the second semi final with their song Rändajad. Estonia was very successful in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but luck turned in recent years as the country is one of only two, the other being Andorra, that competed in every semi final stage broadcast since 2004 but never managed to qualify.Last year, Kreisiraadio finished 18th and hence second last in the first semi final with Leto svet.
