Harmonija Disonance have released their Dora 2023 entry "Nevera (Lei, Lei)" on all major streaming platforms.
The group was announced as one of the 18 acts that will be competing in this years edition of Dora on December 9th, and their official entry “Nevera (Lei, Lei)” was subsequently released on YouTube January 12th (along with all the other competing Dora 2023 entries).
But today, it’s the turn of the streaming platforms, as “Nevera (Lei, Lei)” is now available on Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, iTunes, Deezer and Tidal. The official video is still available to watch on YouTube.
The music and arrangement for “Nevera (Lei, Lei)” has been composed by Pocket Palma Duo Anja Papa and Luka Vidović, alongside Bartol Stopić, who has also written the song with Bojan Petrović and Sanja Daić. Credits for the music video go to Teodora Martić.
A tribute to fusion and tradition
The members of Harmonija Disonance are very excited to have the opportunity to perform on the Dora stage in Opatija, and are very happy to be bringing this style of music to such a wide audience, as they explain:
“We are very much looking forward to performing at Dora 2023; this will be our chance to introduce Croatia with something brand-new from Harmonija Disonance and then unveil the best of Croatia to Europe and the rest of the world!”
“The style and theme of the song are a tribute to the fusion of traditon and contemporary in a way that they are not mutually exclusive. The song has many different meanings – it is up to each listener to choose an interpretation that most closely represents their emotions.”
