The new song title for the 29-year-old Efendi is ‘Mata Hari’. It will serve as the song for Azerbaijan at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
After 4 attempts to become Azerbaijan’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest, the 5th attempt was victorious. An international jury, which included music producers, composers, television industry professionals and journalists, chose Efendi last year to represent the country with the song Cleopatra. After the EBU cancelled the contest, she remained the Azeri entrant to the contest in 2021.
Efendi will sing “Mata Hari” for Azerbaijan
The lyrics of the song tell the tale of Mata Hari. He was a Dutch exotic dancer who was convicted of being a spy during World War I; though some historians dispute this was ever the case.
