Art Pod with Mathias Kryger #21

It is actually a very simple question: Why is Palestine not included in the Eurovision Song Contest?

A more cryptic question could be: Is it an advantage to have been shipwrecked in the South China Sea together with Troels Kløvedal when you have to meet with those who decide on Eurovision Song Contest?

Hear the story of when the artist group SUPERFLEX together with the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) and the Palestinian Sabreen Association for Artistic Development trooped up to the EBU (European Broadcasting Union (they are the ones behind the Eurovision Song Contest aka the European Melodigrandprix)) and lobbied for active membership in the union and thus for participation in the grand prix in 2008.

And what happened this year that tied new and quite touching knots to the story of Palestine in Melo?

Rasmus Nielsen from SUPERFLEX reports.
