Arash introduces Safura during the concert - PHOTOS

17 April 2010 [10:59] - TODAY.AZ
For the first time Azerbaijan stood out to the Eurovision crowd a year ago when the fiery duo Aysel & Arash blew Moscow away. But it’s no secret that as a performer and producer Arash has been widely known before Eurovision 2009 and remains in great demand afterwards. On April 15th he gave a solo concert in Kiev Palace of Sports and once again the explosiveness of his show was equal only to the audience’s enthusiasm.

Safura visited Arash in the holiest of the holy - his back stage dressing room, the place that is off limits even to the most prominent press. In fact, Arash himself had to elbow aside a few members of his own team in order to let Safura in – his English-Swedish management hawks watch their talent pretty closely.

Well, the higher the obstacles, the warmer the reunion. Safura and Arash laughed and talked and even sang a few tunes with the help of Arash’s musicians. ‘Always’ - the last year’s entry to Eurovision which brought Aysel & Arash the bronze - sounded particularly lovely in the low tech environment of the dressing room…

And then Arash went on stage and Safura stepped down to the VIP sector right near it, beyond all the barriers and fences. At the end Arash all of a sudden whisked her to the stage and introduced to the raving audience. The two improvised a little at which point Arash had announced Safura as this year’s Azerbaijani entry to the Eurovision contest and wished her the best of luck.
