jESC 2015: Bulgaria – Gabriela Yordanova and Ivan Stoyanov – Colour of hope



It’s the continuation of my opinion regarding the 17 competing entries from the 17 participating countries of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015, which will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria (officially, though, the host will be Bulgaria as a whole. Sofia is only the location of the venue)

It’s now the host country’s turn – in another words, Bulgaria. Despite having the title translated in english – “Colour of hope” – the eastern-influenced ballad about hope will be fully sung in bulgarian by Gabriela Yordanova (who also co-wrote the lyrics) and Ivan Stoyanov. Part of the team that made the bulgarian jESC 2014 entry (“Planet of the children”, Krisia, Hasan & Ibrahim) has also made this year’s entry: Slavi Trifonov, Evgeni Dimitrov and Ivalo Vulchev. A more extensive biography of the participant can be seen on this link:

Now to the opinion of the song: For starters, this is no “Planet of the children”. But then again, the entry itself seems to follow that entry’s footsteps due to its lavish arrangements, its dream-like musicality, the peaceful message depicted in the lyrics and its implemented vocal harmony (although everything is much simpler and less artsy in “Colour of hope”). Could this give the country’s first win in a EBU song contest? Time well tell – let’s see if the overall performance will put this one to a further level

Georgia will be next country to have an opinion from me. Watch out for it…

Thank you,
