Ані Лорак

Ani Lorak is a pop singer from Ukraine. She is another Eurovision contender, competing for Ukraine twice: in 2005 and 2008. In 2008 her song “Shady Lady” won her second place (1st was Dima Bilan from Russia).

Lorak has had 12 albums I believe to date, but the only one I have been able to get my hands on is her 2009 Солнце (Sun). From what I have read this album took more of a departure from earlier albums, having a more European sound, and though I have no knowledge of her earlier work this album is unabashedly Euro-pop (which of course I adore!). The album had 2 singles which both went #1 in Ukraine and Russia: “Солнце“and A дальше” The title track also won “Best Song of the Year” in 2009 at the Золотой граммофон awards in Moscow.

The album is full of great Euro-dance beats. Many of the tracks are great to just dance to like the first track Птица! Many other tracks are more down tempo ballades but they are still beautiful and fun!
