INFORMATION ABOUT THE ARTIST

The SunStroke Project is a Moldovan musical trio composed of Sergei Yalovitsky (vocals), Anton Ragoza (violinist and composer) and Sergey Stepanov (saxophonist). They are famous for representing Moldova in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 together with Olia Tira. The name of the group was chosen by Anton Ragoza whilst working in the army with Sergey Stepanov, where out on the field he got sunstroke. On February 25, 2017, SunStroke Project was selected once more to represent Moldova in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. In November 2010 the producer, Aleksei Myslicky and some other members (including song authors) left SunStroke Project and created a new band in Moscow called Offbeat Orchestra who have performed and released versions of some of the songs by SunStroke Project.

Anton Ragoza was born ond November 28, 1986 in Tiraspol, Transnistria. He is the violinist and primary musical composer for the band. Previously he has conducted the orchestra of Chişinău and won a series of prestigious awards in the field of classical music. Anton has a wide experience in performing in bands which play in the modern electronic genre. He identified Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson as musical inspirations.

Sergey Stepanov is the saxophonist. He was born September 3, 1984 in Tiraspol, Transnistria. He currently lives in Chisinau, Moldova. He doesn’t have an official Twitter or Facebook page. All his groups and pages are created by his fans. But there is an official page and profile of the band he is in, Sunstroke Project. His musical taste took contours on the music of such artists as David Sanborn and Eric Marienthal; and modern DJs like David Guetta, David Vendetta and Tiesto. He loves jazz, but he likes to experiment in Vocal House, pop and R&B. He met Anton Ragoza while in the army, and decided to create the band SunStroke Project. In an interview at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2010 he identified Russian saxophonist Igor Butman as musical inspiration.

Sergei Yalovitsky is the vocalist of the band. He previously worked as a singer on cruise lines. He has won various awards for singing in Moldova and Romania.

LYRICS

Hey, hey you
You will never hide what you think of me
I see your clue
Know, you worry, but it don’t meant to be

Hey, hey you
It’s your girl and maybe should sleep at home
But I’ll steal her alone

And I say
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I’m not that unfounded boy
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
All it keeps going round and round

Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
She’ll be back home till sunrise

Like the sun in the sea
She will disappear tonight with me
And I will not anymore
Do what other guys did before

Hey, hey you (Hey you)
It’s your girl and maybe should sleep at home
But I’ll steal her alone

And I say
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I’m not that unfounded boy
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
All it keeps going round and round

Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
She’ll be back home till sunrise

(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma, ma…) Oh, mamma, mamma, ma…
(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma, mamma)

(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma, ma…) Oh, mamma, mamma, ma…
(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma)

And I say
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I’m not that unfounded boy
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
All it keeps going round and round

Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
She’ll be back home till sunrise

Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma (Hey bababa…)

Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
