Transcript of the interview:
Host: Alexander, hello! I’ve heard that you’ve become a producer now. You have your own group in Belarus, which you are preparing for Eurovision. Is that true? Tell us more.
AR: I also heard that I’ve become a producer. To be honest, I wrote a song. I have an idea for the number. I have an idea about the Belarusian accent.. you know when we sing in English, we all, Slavic people, have a funny accent. And instead of hiding it, I wrote a song about it.. the girls sing that “I will always love you, but if you take me, then my accent will have to stay with me”.
AR: I have a producer in Belarus, and he helps us. It’s he who will develop this group. I wouldn’t organise the casting and listen to 400 girls just for one song.Of course, we’ll continue to make songs for them and so on. But, first and foremost, I am a composer.
We thought there were many good questions and answers in that chat, so we selected some of our favorites to be presented here. MH= Meeting Host AR= Alexander Rybak. The full video chat you can find here: Link to video chat
MH: First question: Sasha hi. Tell me please how is it to sing and play the violin at the same time?
AR: I haven’t done this before, it’s tricky. I always finish singing and then start with the violin; I finish playing and then start singing again It’s kind of like traveling between Norway and Russia
