The song “Dona” sounds like a Balkan schlager from the 90’s. The song is about the woman that protects us all. Kaliopi sings of thanks and praise for Dona. Even if Kaliopi is praised as the Diva from the Balkan, this song has nothing modern at all, and it’s not even catchy.
This entry cannot be compared with her last brilliant ESC entry “Crno I Belo”. There is an obvious overhang of women with mid-tempo songs this year. It will be very difficult for the lovely singer Kaliopi to stand out of the others. This year FYR Macedonia will have a hard job to qualify for the Grand Final.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
