The first look at Soleá’s performance for Spain at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest has been released.
Soleá is joined on stage by four dancers: Lucía Arcos, Tania Gálvez, Carlos Damas and Iván Cuadros. The stage performance is based on Soleá’s flamenco roots but with a modern twist. The dancers all have skateboards, which they use at various points in the performance. There are also four blocks on stage, which when put together reveal “Tira Palante” written on the back.
Spain was one of eight delegations to opt to record their performance in their own country. The recording of the Spanish performance took place in Madrid in mid-October.
Who is Soleá?
Nine-year-old Soleá Fernandez Moreno is from Sevilla, Spain. The singer comes from one of the most important flamenco families in the country (the Farruco family), and she made her singing debut in a family show at the La Maestranza theatre when she was young. At four years old, she began dancing and acting, starring in Navidad En Familia.
Soleá was internally selected by RTVE to represent her country at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Her song “Palante” was composed by César G. Ross, Hajar Sbihi, and Bruno Valverde. The song was written to spread positivity during the times of the Covid-19 crisis.
