Today, in total ease, we welcome the French touch of the 2018 Festivali i Kengës! Genc Tukiçi is indeed French-Albanian, and this interview was originally made in French!
How would you define yourself in one word?
How would you describe your state of mind when you're on stage?
How would you quickly tell your life story?
How does one make you angry?
How does one make you happy?
Love between human beings, when people love each other.
How would you define your taste in music?
If there was just 1 artist you could listen to for the rest of your life, who would it be?
My father. He was a tenor, an opera singer.
How would you describe your song for the contest, Të pandarë?
How did you make the decision of entering Festivali I Kengës this year?
Love between brothers (and sisters) is a very peculiar kind of love. I have a sister and a brother and it came to me, unavoidably, I don't really know why, to write a song to celebrate this love.
How would you make us want to come to Albania?
Albania was gifted with beautiful nature, the sea and the mountains, welcoming, passionate and kind-hearted people; the food is delicious... when you come once, you want to come back. And also, Albania is a "little country", but I have to say with a great culture. Have a taste and you will see.
How do you picture Eurovision in 10 years?
In 10 years, Eurovision will be made of orchestras and live singers, and contrary to today, after the Contest, the songs will be hummed by everyone in Europe, and elsewhere.
How are you going to win Eurovision 2018?
I will be singing not only with my heart, but also and more importantly with my heart.
Genc will be performing with his brother David in one of the Festival's two semifinals next week. Thank you very much for your kindness!
