A very eventful Latvian evening tonight, with interviews by the two favourites of the second semi-final. Here is the mystical Madara !
How would you define yourself in one word?
How would you describe your state of mind when you're on stage?
Each time I am on the stage, I feel like nothing else exists, just me, that moment and vibrations of sound all around me.
How would you quickly tell your life story?
From an ugly duckling to a fairy - the tale of “Braveheart”.
How does one make you angry?
Oh, it is easy! By delaying my meal time or making me work very late at night.
How does one make you happy?
By smiling to me and making me feel it through hugs!
How would you define your taste in music?
Very broad. I love everything that is divine and makes sense, gives some meaning to me.
If there was just 1 artist you could listen to for the rest of your life, who would it be?
How would you describe Esamiba, your song for the contest?
Truthful and meaningful, an emotionally filled composition with the most delicate, soul touching power.
How did you make the decision of entering the Supernova this year?
This idea to take part in Supernova 2018 was inspired and motivated by my cello teachers in the Netherlands. Supernova has never been the aim, but by playing this song suddenly it felt so powerful and meaningful that deep into myself whispered this idea – it should be listened to worldwide. And some moments later I read about Supernova. You can call it coincidence but now I know – it was the right choice!
How would you make us want to come to Latvia?
I cannot make it happen, but if you love the nature than in Latvia you will see and feel that our culture is deeply connected with it. We have lands and space for silence, music, freedom and inspiration. This is a place where true friendship and smile on people's face is something much bigger, worth feeling.
How do you picture Eurovision in 10 years?
More meaningful, well known competition for delivering true pieces of art. It might be the largest musical event that unites different souls, different people around the world.
How are you going to win Eurovision 2018?
By being myself and showing my truthful story that will first of all resonate with me and hopefully with all the world and existence too.
Madara, thank you very much for this interview ! She will sing Esamiba will all her heart tomorrow night!
