Vasil Garvanliev will be North Macedonia’s act for Eurovision 2020. The former backing singer for the country has been chosen internally by broadcaster MRT.
Garvanliev was part of the Macedonian delegation in Tel Aviv 2019, as off-stage backing singer for Tamara Todevska during her succesful performance of the song ‘Proud’. One year later, he will be in the lead for North Macedonia.
Vasil was born and raised in Macedonia, but his family fled to the other side of the ocean because of the Balkan wars in the 90’s. He made name for himself as an opera singer in Canada. If he will also perform a song in that genre is still unknown, as the Macedonian song for Rotterdam will be revealed later on in the season. Below you can get a taste of what his music sounds like:
