The members have met in Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory and formed the band there. They released their first album “Pátá bohyně” in 2018 and second album in 2020 called “Anima”. “My sister’s crown” has won the national selection ESCZ 2023. The song was written by the members with collaboration with an ukrainian musician Kateryna Vatchenko.
Czechia’s Eurovision Journey!
Czechia made their debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007, with Kabát’s “Malá dama”. However, their debut entry finished last in a 28-song semi-final, scoring only 1 point. Afterwards, this kicked off three consecutive non-qualifications, with their best result coming in 2008, finishing in second-last place. Having withdrawn in 2009 due to poor results, Czechia returned to the Contest in 2015. In 2016, Czechia qualified for the first time with Gabriela Gunciková’s “I Stand”.
In 2022, We Are Domi represented Czechia with their song “Lights Off”. Performing in the second semi-final in Turin, the band qualified for the final – and finished in 22nd place in a field of 25 with 38 points.
