Sona Azizova will represent Azerbaijan in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021. She gave us an exclusive interview just one week before she is going to Paris!

ES: Sona, you were born in Baku and have lived already in Serbia and Romania, how did that happen? How long did you live there? 

Sona: Yes, I have lived 4 years in Serbia and 3 years in Romania. It happened because my parents love traveling, and they often changed their workplaces. And I travelled a lot together with my family.

ES: You told us that you can speak Azerbaijani, English and Russian, but maybe you can also speak Serbian, Romanian and other languages?  

Sona: Yes, I speak several languages. I used to speak Serbian and Romanian when I was a kid. As I didn’t use these languages later, I forgot them. But still remember some words.

ES: When and why did you start to sing and play the piano? Are your parents musicians?

Sona: My parents aren’t musicians, but they like listening to music very much. And I was hearing music all day long, may be this inspired me to start to sing as well.

ES: You have a lot of hobbies, besides music – gymnastics and crafts, and even copper embossing – how do you manage your time? 

Sona: Actually, I spend a lot of time singing and listening to music. In my free time I do gymnastics and do copper embossing when I visit my grandfather. 

ES: You will sing a beautiful ballad “One Of Those Days”, how do you feel about the song? What helps you improve your expression and feeling when singing?

Sona: When I sing my song, I think about my family and also about the people who risk their lives to save others, doctors, nurses, firefighters and so on. 

ES: Who are your musical idols? Who inspires you?

Sona: I like listening to the Cranberries, Maneskin, Adele, Cynthia Erivo, Faozia. 

ES: Are you an Eurovision fan? Was it your dream to get to Junior Eurovision?

Sona: Yes, I am interested in everything that is connected with music. And participating in Eurovision is the dream of each musician, as well as mine. I am very happy to be a participant in Junior Eurovision. Thank you for the interview.

ES: Thank you very much for the interview, Sona and good luck in Paris!
