VENTSPILS, LATVIA – The 2014 edition of Dziesma is over and we have a winner! Aarzemnieki will represent Latvia in the 59th Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Cake To Bake”
Aarzemnieki (meaning foreigners) is made up of four members: Jöran Steinhauer (lead singer), Guntis Veilands, Katrīna Dimanta and Raitis Vilumovs. The band formed last year when lead singer Jöran wrote a farewell song to the former Latvian currency Lat. It became a YouTube sensation. Jöran then formed a band and the four members have since sung across pubs and clubs across the country. The band describes itself as “authentic and creative” and still in the process of finding themselves.
