As we prepare to say goodbye to the Eurovision class of 2021, we present the TES Awards! 136 people voted across 12 categories, and it now brings us great pleasure to announce our winners.
In this category, we celebrate one of the many things we love about Eurovision – the opportunity it provides for countries to show off their culture. What makes them special. Their music, the instruments, their costumes, their lyrics, their language, and more! Which 2021 entry best showed off the culture of the country or participant it was representing?
And now for the winners…
In third place… Birth of a New Age by Jeangu Macrooy
Celebrating his Surinamese heritage, Jeangu’s entry reflected many facets of his own identity and wider culture with joy.
In second place… Russian Woman by Manizha
The dress contains traditional fabrics from all over Russia. How can you not love it?
And the winner of the Most Culturally Representative award is… Shum by Go_A!
Fusing electronica with traditional folk music, Go_A brought a modern take on Ukranian culture to the Eurovision stage.
