UFA, 21 October 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Alim Faizov, Fatima Yanbaeva/. The qualifying round of the international song contest "Suns Europe-2015" , an analog of the popular contest "Eurovision" finished. The main difference between this competition and other song contests is that it invites representatives of small nations to participation. The main requirement is performance of the composition exclusively in the native language with full representation of the folk culture.
More than 80 creative teams from around the world took part in the qualifying round. Only nine participants reached the final. Invitation to participate in the final stage of the competition was received also by the Bashkir ethnic group "Zaman" — a team from Moscow.
The finals of "Suns Europe-2015" will take place in the city of Udine (Italy), in a complex «Teatro Nuovo» on December 11, 2015. The winner will receive prize money and sign a contract, according to which it will take part in other major European festivals.
