Since mid 90s "Zdob si Zdub” combines the hardcore and Moldovan folklore in a unique and elegant way, offering a spectacular live show… call them ethno-rockers, if you wish. Add some hip-hop, drum'n'bass, jungle, punk… an original music crossover, the meeting point of urban intensity and rural spirit. This charismatic band leaves deep traces in Moldova’s music history.
Although coming from a small, isolated and economically poor country from Eastern Europe, their creativity, dedication and diligence led to the building of an interesting Discography and brought them on stages all over the world.
Over the years, Zdob si Zdub opened for renowned bands like: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Emir Kusturica & No Smoking Orchestra, Korn, Biohazard, Rollins Band, Rage Against The Machine, Soulfly, The Garbage, Fun Lovin' Criminals, Linkin Park and many others.
The music’s personality is also transmitted through the videos that accompany 17 songs. Most videos can be watched on Youtube.
In order to bring additional authenticity to its sound, Zdob si Zdub recorded songs, but also played live, with traditional singers as Vasile Dinu (MC Vasile, from Romania), Osoianu Sisters (Moldova), Trio Erdenko (Russia) and others.
The band’s activity was appreciated by various TV channels (among them, MTV Europe), magazines, radio stations, thus enriching its collection of awards.
Their first Eurovision experience is Moldova’s debut in the Contest, dating back to 2005. At the 50th edition Zdob si Zdub represented their country with the song "Boonika Bate Doba”, placed 6th in the Final.
Zdob si Zdub released 11 albums since 1996.
Ursul is their most recent single. Zdob și Zdub had some special guests for this episode, the kids from 'Atelierul de Voce si Muzica' al Loredanei Groza: Clara Manole, Riana Filipoiu, Eva Margina, Alessia Vlad, Andra Ionita, Maria Marinache, Matei Florescu, Carla Nița under the wand of Anișoara Balmuș.
