Dschinghis Khan are an iconic band, who represented Germany in Eurovision back in 1979 in Israel, and finished in fourth place. After “Dschinghis Khan”, their next single “Moskau” was yet another international hit, especially popular in the Soviet Union, and over the years this song has been covered numerous times in different languages.
Seeing as the 2018 World Cup is going to be held later this month in Russia, the composer of both “Dschinghis Khan” and “Moskau” and a Eurovision veteran Ralph Siegel has decided to re-form the band for this particular occasion. “Moscow, Москва, Moscú” has been re-written and is performed by two of the original members of Dschinghis Khan – Edina Pop and Henriette Strobel, together with various new artists from different countries. The idea behind this project is to make “Moscow, Москва, Moscú” the unofficial World Cup anthem.
The new members of Dschinghis Khan include a Mexican tenor Jorge Jimenez, Marifer Medrano, Russian superstar Aleksander Malinin and his daughter Ustinya, as well as the former member of US5 who’s first solo single “Nackt” with its controversial video clip made it to number 1 in Germany.
“Moscow, Москва, Moscú” is sung in four languages – English, German, Russian and Spanish, and the song is available on all music platforms – iTunes, Google Play, Apple Music, but you can also give it a listen right here:
