Montenegro confirmed participation in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest today by announcing Rambo Amadeus would be RTCG’s representative in Baku.
As we reported recently, Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG announced that participation in Eurovision in Baku was a strong possibility. Today, Rade Vojvodic gave us a few further details. The as yet unnamed song will be recorded in Ljubljana at the studio of Slovene musician Robert Pesut. Rambo is a distinguished performer throughout the Balkan region and is currently a UNICEF ambassador. His participation is a great opportunity to promote Montenegro on the world stage.
Rambo Amadeus was born in Kotor in 1963, and is the stage name of Antonije Pušic. He released his first album, O tugo jesenja, in 1988. Over a dozen albums have followed, the most recent being Hipishizik Metafizik in 2008. He specialises in jazz and rock, and is happy to fuse the two. Also in 1988, Rambo performed as part of the RTS Big Band jazz orchestra to celebrate its 60th anniversary.
