Biography

Chişinău, Moldova (1998 – present)

Dan Mihai Bălan (born 6 February 1979 in Chişinău, Moldova) is a Moldovan singer, songwriter, and producer. He has performed rock and pop. He is most known for his part in the eurodance music trio O-Zone, a group he led to fame across Europe with the hit single “Dragostea din Tei.”

Career:

O-Zone
The group was started by Dan Bălan in 1998 with Petru Jelihovschi. They released their first album, Dar, unde eşti?! (Where are you?) in 1999, and were a major success in Romania. However, for Petru music was just a hobby so the group split up. Bălan was determined not to end the project though, and he later held open auditions where he met Arsenie Todiraş. At first he was a bit skeptical of Arsenie until he heard him sing “Love me Tender”. But that only made two. By chance, a couple weeks later Radu Sirbu called Bălan because he had missed the auditions. Sirbu’s audition was a success and the three officially formed a band.
They mainly sang eurodance music in Romanian, and were especially famous for their hit single “Dragostea Din Tei”, a notable summer hit from the album DiscO-Zone which in English translates to Love from the Linden Trees. Dragostea Din Tei reached Number one on the singles charts of many European countries in 2003 and 2004, and was number three in the United Kingdom. Another single called “Despre Tine” from the same album had similar success across Europe.

    блять, ну с таким творчеством не удивительно, что живя в нью-йорке, он там не нужен никому на йух, примерно также как шуфутинский.

    t-klimenko - Молдавия раньше входила в состав СССР, русский язык по сей день в Молдавии является вторым, после государственного, на нём говорит большая часть населения.
