Eurovision Song Contest entry 1-6

Romania, ah, Romania. Mandinga brings us Zaleilah.

OK, I admit it, I love Balkan states ethnic-influenced folky pop. I don't expect Afro-Cuban styled Balkan pop-folk, though. That's Mandinga's thing, apparently.

So on the Eurovision cliché scale, it's pretty far up there. Balkan, pop-folk, bagpipes, accordion, dusky female lead singer, heavy percussion... yeah. Only with a hint of salsa.

The video is amusing, but not really that creative. It does show off Elena to good effect, though.

I like this one.
