The Latvian national final, Supernova is just around the corner! If you follow Supernova for a longer time now, then Katrīna Gupalo will be familiar for you. The Latvian-Ukranian singer first competed in 2018, but was not successful to get to the final. This year she had another chance with ‘The cat’s song’, and got the possibility to get on the stage for the final of the Latvian selection this Saturday!
We had a chance to make an interview with her, read it below with love!
Your song in Supernova 2024 is called “The Cat’s Song”, such an interesting title. Can you give us an insight about the song, what was the idea behind it? Was it written for Supernova on purpose?
This summer a cat named Dakota came into my life for the first time. It brought new, bright and very sweet colours into my everyday life, which I really wanted to share with my listeners. We live in quite scary times, when very tragic and painful events happen every day and none of us has a sense of security about the future. That’s why I wanted to give people in Latvia, Europe and all over the world something warm, sweet, light and carefree – like a kind of cat therapy. I am so thrilled that my goal has come true and the song about a cat makes almost everyone who listens to it smile, sing and dance along! The first demo recording of “The Cat’s Song” was made one night in a free and artistic atmosphere at a creative camp in Latgale, together with my friends – song’s producer Edgar Vilcāns and the co-authors Evija Smagare and Armands Varslavāns.
Thank you Katrīna, we wish you all the best!
