Soluna Samay, born Soluna Samay Kettel on 27 August 1990, originally in Guatemala City, Guatemala. She is a Danish singer now. Samay will represent Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan with her entry “Should’ve Known Better”. That’s the song that I fell in love and made me pay attention to Soluna. Finally I will have a reason to watch Eurovision again and will have someone to cheer for.
Samay’s musician father Gerd G. Kettel is from Germany (Stage name Gee Gee Kettel) and her artisan mother is Annelis Ziegler from Switzerland. Samay grew up on the shores of Lake Atitlan. She attended the American Robert Muller LIFE school. Samay moved to Denmark in 2000 when her parents purchased a small farm on the Island of Bornholm. Samay is multilingual speaking fluent English, Danish, Spanish and German.
Samay was chosen as a wildcard entry by DR1 for the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix (Danish Eurovision Song Contest), singing a song called “Should’ve Known Better” written by Remee Remee and Isam B (Outlandish) and produced by Chief1. She won the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2012 on January 21st and will now represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012.
Soluna recorded her debut album “Sing Out Loud” over a two year period, produced by Jesper Mejlvang and Michael Friis. It was released by Baltic Records on 23 September 2011.
Soluna performs Pop/rock/reggae/folk genre music and she really has amazing voice, that can be heard pure in one of the many videos where she performs simply on the street.
I think this is someone to follow and to cheer for strongly in this years Eurovision which will happen on 22-24th May in Baku.
And here is the beautiful song…=)
And few other songs of her…
And a treat…Soluna performing when she’s 11 on the streets of Denmark, this time solo, without her dad…=)
