Shum (song)

"Shum" (Ukrainian: Шум, transl."Noise") is a song by Ukrainian electro-folk band Go_A. It represented Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam.[3][4] It is the second song sung entirely in Ukrainian to represent the country at Eurovision (the first being "Solovey" also by Go_A in 2020), but the first to actually compete in Eurovision due to the cancellation of the 2020 contest.
