Biography

Zdob şi Zdub [pron. ZDOB-shi-ZDOOB] is a Moldovan band, based in Chişinău (Republic of Moldova), whose work for the last several years combines elements of hip-hop (especially sampling) and hardcore punk with traditional Romanian music and gipsy music. The name is onomatopoeic for the sound of a drum beat. The band represented Moldova in the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, finishing 6th.
Band history

Band history

The band was formed in 1994. Various line-ups, initial sound rather hardcore and lyrics mostly in Russian, played at “10 Years After Chernobyl” Action in Chişinău, warmed up for Rage Against the Machine at the Learn to Swim II Festival in 1996; the recording of that festival includes their “В доме моем” (“V dome moiom”, “In My House”) in Russian, and “Hardcore Moldovenesc” in Romanian.

Around 1998, their sound began to change, embracing traditional Romanian/Moldovan music and with lyrics entirely in Romanian.

On August 14, 1999, Zdob şi Zdub played as part of the Russian MTV-Party, held on Red Square in Moscow, along with Russian bands “Gorky Park” and “IFK” and US band The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The band has toured extensively, mostly in Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania, but also in Germany (1998) and the Netherlands (2000), and more recently in Serbia, Hungary, and Italy. On January 31, 2001, in Moscow, “Zdob şi Zdub” performed with the legendary musician and film director Emir Kusturica and his “No Smoking Orchestra”.

    зажгли один раз на трибьюте "Кино", а потом продолжили бесконечно повторять один и тот же прикол с дудками. Ну сколько уже можно, ребята, а?

    Moldova doesn't need to hold a competition to see who goes to the Eurovision. Just keep sending Zdob Şi Zdub.
