The international pop music festival in Brasov was closed last night by the Italian singer Tiziano Ferro following the Awards Ceremony and the recitals by Loredana and Steve Vai.
On Saturday night, the band Vama (photo) performed an energetic and brilliantly choreographed show with over 40 guests on the stage of the Golden Stag, Agerpres informs
The evening started with the announcement of the nine finalists of the performing competition, respectively Antonino (Italy), Geta Burlacu (the Republic of Moldova), Glen Vella (Malta), Jasmine (Romania), Laura (Finland), Ori Piaf (Israel), Orlin Pavlov (Bulgaria), Ovi (Norway) and The Marker (Romania). Afterwards, the five members of the band Vama started their performance of lights and visuals.
The first song, “Fotomodele,” also provided an opportunity for an improvised dance, as eight models entered the stage beside the rockers.
The songs “Pe sarma” and “Am doar 18 ani” followed, accompanied by over 30 high school students who created an euphoric atmosphere and determined the audience to cheer, dance and sing along.
The concert also included the song “17 Years” from the band’s latest album entitled “Vama,” the first recording ever to be launched by SMS and also “La radio,” sang along by the audience, just like most of the songs of the show
Band vocalist Tudor Chirila issued a few statements that hinted at political issues, the new EU regulations and the press, before his songs “Tata taie porcul,” “Dumnezeu nu apare la stiri” and “E plin de fete.”
“We are witnessing an alchemy of dirt aired by Romanian TV stations. The only thing we need is to see God at the news,” Chirila yelled, stirring the cheers of the audience,
When the show performed by Vama, featuring Tudor Chirila (vocals), Eugen Carminschi (guitar), Raul Kusak (keyboards), Lucian Cioarga (drums) and Dan Opris (bass) seemed to come to an end, after over an hour of performing, they returned to stage due to the frantic yells of the audience, and performed three encores: the songs “Cartita,” “Epilog” and “Fericire.”
“The performance we are watching in the audience is more beautiful than the show you are seeing on stage. You have offered us plenty of trust tonight, and we want to thank you,” Tudor Chirila said to the audience, who were paid a reverence by all the members of the band.
The Golden Stag continued on Sunday with three concerts by Loredana, Steve Vai and Tiziano Ferro, and by the Awards’ Ceremony.
Before the show, Tiziano Ferro told a press conference that he would perform songs from his latest album “Alla mia eta.”
“I am so happy to be here! I saw the performance last night. The stage is huge. It is for the first time that a show I perform is aired live and I must confess that I am quite impressed” the Italian said.
Asked whether he would work with a Romanian artist, Tiziano Ferro declared that it would be a good idea, given that his motto was “Let’s Find Happiness through Music.”
