“Moon of Dreams” - The first single and video - is a duet with T-Pain and is already a smash in Poland and the Ukraine and the album was released on the 2nd of September 2008 in Canada.
“Wild Energy” combines the elements of music, video production, literature and social commitment in an extraordinary way. Dedicated to the idea of the independence of human feelings and freedoms using original and rarely heard ethnic sounds; the music blends these ancient styles and singing traditions of the Carpathian Mountain people with modern popular music. The timbre of Ruslana’s voice coupled with her unique vocal styling is unmistakable and instantly identifiable to millions of her fans.
With Ego Works’ creative production, Ruslana creates her own distinctive technique of incorporating the use of original grooves. She channels the inspiration for her own unique style of music from the peaks and valleys of the Carpathian Mountains.
Ruslana won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 with her “Wild Dances” and voted the Best Eurovision Song of all time and making her one of the most popular artists in Europe. “Wild Dances” and its singles dominated fourteen charts for 97 weeks and the single was No. 1 in Belgium for a staggering 11 weeks.
Ruslana is the DJ voice for the fictional Vladivostok FM radio station on the new Grand Theft Auto IV, the biggest selling video game of all time.
