About the winners of the National Selection 2018
The HUMANS („Goodbye”)
The HUMANS („Goodbye”)
Every single member of the band The Humans loves the same mix of musical styles: funk-pop-rock: Adi Tetrade (drums), Alin Neagoe (bass), Alexandru Matei (keyboards), Alex Cismaru (guitar), Adrian Tănase (voice), Cristina Caramarcu (voice).
“We believe in Humanity” –this is the motto that helps the band manifest their artistic moment. All the levels of human feelings, the high point of the values gathered from the life experience of the 6 musicians, the empathy exercise practiced during the time is what represents them, entirely. Their music is not a mechanical act of interpretation, but a share of emotions without any borders between them and the public. Music is not merely a reproduction, but an assumed act of creation.
The latest single launched by The Humans band, “Goodbye” – composed by Alin Neagoe, Cristina Caramarcu and Alexandru Matei – is the song which has brought the band the qualification in the semi-final of the contest Eurovision 2018.
