2010 Eurovision contenders – Album survey, Part 2

We start the second part of our album survey with Croatia’s girl trio Feminnem, no strangers to the Eurovision Song Contest having represented Bosnia & Herzegovina in the 2005 contest with the song Call Me (placed 14th).

It was made in collaboration with Branimir Mihaljevic, who deserves credit for music and production of their hits in recent years.
