Biography

Lidia Ganeva was born in Plodiv, the second-largest city in Bulgaria. She attended the Armenian school in her hometown and has been involved in music from a very early age; her parents are musicians with Bulgaria’s famous folk ensemble, Trakiya. Lidia often accompanied her parents during their stage performances and they said that Lidia could sing before she could speak, often repeating phrases from children’s songs that her mother sang to her.

Lidia participated in her first musical competition when she was four years old, the youngest participant to win a prize. At six she joined the “Art Voice Centre” music school. With Rumi Ivanova as her singing teacher, Lidia won a total of 22 first, 4 second and 2 third prizes in national and international festivals.

In June Lidia won Bulgaria’s national selection for Junior Eurovision 2016 in Malta, receiving the highest score in the competition from viewers and the jury. Magical Day” (Вълшебен ден) was written by Vladimir “Grafa” Ampov, one of the most popular Bulgarian pop singers. The song is about the power of childhood dreams that can make the world a better and brighter place to live.

Lidia is a fan of both Junior Eurovision and the Eurovision Song Contest. She says that representing Bulgaria is a dream come true. Her favourite artists include Adele, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera. She lists Bulgarian artists Lili Ivanova, Pasha Hristova and Margarita Hranova as having the greatest artistic influence on her. Lidia has a pet rabbit called, Zai Zai, who is also her mascot.

Lyrics:

Bulgarian

Не е важно къде
на земята си роден,
Ако ти винаги
гониш своите мечти…Не е важно коя
е твоята падаща звезда,
ако ти в себе си
търсиш мир, а не войни…Светлина за теб и мен!
на децата е подарен
по един вълшебен ден…Вярвам, има чудеса
във всяка приказка…
Зная, само любовта –
остава на света…
Вярвам, има чудеса
във всяка приказка…
На децата е подарен
по един вълшебен ден!Не е важно дали
сме различни аз и ти…
Щом във твоето сърце
виждам всички цветове!Не е важно накъде
пътят ще ни отведе…
Пясъчни замъци
заедно ще построим…Светлина за теб и мен!
на децата е подарен
по един вълшебен ден…Вярвам, има чудеса
във всяка приказка…
Зная, само любовта –
остава на света…
Вярвам, има чудеса
във всяка приказка…
На децата е подарен
по един вълшебен ден!Doesn’t matter at all
What’s the color of your skin…
Doesn’t matter at all
What’s the difference between us…(3)

English

Doesn’t matter at all where
on earth you were born,
If you always
pursue your dreams …Doesn’t matter at all what
is your shooting star
if within yourself you
seek peace, not war …Light for you and me!
Let’s give all children
one magical day …!Bridge:
I believe there are miracles
In every fairytale
And I know only love –
Will remain in the world …
I believe there are miracles
In every fairytale
Let’s give all children
one magical day …!Doesn’t matter at all
If we are different you and I …
If once in your heart
I can see every colour!Doesn’t matter at all
Where the road will take us …
Sand castles
together we will build …Light for you and me!
Let’s give all children
one magical day …!I believe there are miracles
In every fairytale
And I know only love –
Will remain in the world …
I believe there are miracles
In every fairytale
Let’s give all children
one magical day …!Chorus in English:
Doesn’t matter at all
what’s the colour of your skin…
Doesn’t matter at all
what’s the difference between us…(3)

Na zemiata si roden,

Gonish svoite mechti…
