They do still exist, these incredible surprises. Those special but rare times when a song captivates you and stays. This is what happens when newcomer band Elaiza jumps on stage and encircles you with their most unusual modern-traditional sound. Elaiza (Ela-i-sa) is the new female German act evolving around singer/songwriter Ela Steinmetz. Ela´s Ukrainian-Polish background clearly influences her songwriting and singing. The band already won the best newcomer award at the Women of the World festival 2013 in Frankfurt. At the club concert ´Our song for Denmark´ in Hamburg in late February, they reached for the ´wildcard´ - the last ticket to go on the final show determining the German participant at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 – and they sensationally won. Elaiza – these are singer/songwriter/pianist Ela, accordionist Yvonne Grünwald and contrabassist Natalie Plöger. Each one of these three women has formed a very special liaison with their specific instrument. Their music combines traditional Eastern European folk with a most catching modern sound, sometimes called neo-folklore or roots-pop-crossover. The songs show real emotion and come straight from the heart. With the team of the Valicon producers in Berlin Elaiza has created their debut album called ´Gallery´ which will be on sale end of March 2014.
