Kalush Orchestra's winning song Stefania a tribute to Oleh Psiuk's motherThis year's Eurovision Song Contest saw a surprising result for a Ukrainian entry‚ as the Kalush Orchestra won the contest with Stefania a tribute to Ole H. Psiuk's mother. The winning song was an unlikely choice‚ as the group had never rehearsed before arriving in Italy. But judging by the number of votes it received‚ the song was well-deserved. The song has a traditional Ukrainian melody‚ and the ensemble was coached by folklore experts. The band's winning entry was a rousing blend of hip-hop and traditional Ukrainian music. The song Stefania merged rap with traditional Ukrainian music. It was Psiuk's mother's name‚ and the song became a symbol of the resistance in Ukraine. While Kalush Orchestra's win was a triumph for a Ukrainian band‚ the song's lyrics also have a political message. The Eurovision Song Contest is a heavily politicised event. Despite the fact that it takes place in a venue in northern Italy‚ it is politically charged. Ukraine's entry - Stefania a tribute to Oleh Psiuk's mother - has been the most viewed song on YouTube among the 35 national entries. The winning song from this competition is expected to take home the trophy. This year's Eurovision has also prompted a political response. Ukraine has been at war since the beginning of the conflict‚ and the Eurovision competition has become a platform for such an issue. Despite the current political climate‚ the contest is held in a country where men are prohibited from leaving. The song's lyrics and video also reflect the tensions in Ukraine and the world. Ukraine's act was the clear favourite for weeks. The winning song‚ Stefania‚ is a tribute to Psiuk's mother‚ who died in a car accident in Mariupol. The band members' lyrics‚ which describe grey fields and broken roads‚ have also been widely interpreted as a rallying cry for Ukrainians. In the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine‚ Psiuk enlisted in the military‚ but he was allowed to leave the country only on a temporary basis. After winning the Eurovision Song Contest‚ Oleh Psiuk's mother will be remembered with much affection. Their song will have a political message‚ countering Russian President Vladimir Putin's claim that Ukraine was always a part of Russia.
