May 11 / First Rehearsal Armenia: for love, peace and unity
With the logo tree of Genealogy as their LED theme, the six member Armenian representatives present their act standing in the middle of the stage which has blue-purple colours. They are dressed up in grey-bluish-purplish outfits.
“”I was even scared when I heard the idea of Building Bridges between the five continents and Armenia. There is not a billion Armenians in the world, so we managed to find five singers but of course they were of different genres. So the only solution for the song was the musical genre because it allows to join different styles together – opera, RnB, rock!””
Genealogy is “Building Bridges”, as the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest slogan says, between the five continents of the world and the Republic of Armenia. The group consists of Essaï Altounian from Europe, Tamar Kaprelian from America, Stephanie Topalian from Asia, Vahe Tilbian from Africa, Mary-Jean O’Doherty Vasmatzian from Australia, and Inga Arshakyan from Armenia. They are united by the blood in their veins, which contains Armenian genetics, and by music as the universal language of the world.
