Chiara & Martina

Born in Reggio Calabria on May 22nd 2000,fifteen year old sisters Chiara and Martina Scarpari showed a natural love of music since their early childhood.

Chiara and Martina’s singing talent was noticed first by their grandfather, who five years ago encouraged them to follow their passion. Three years later they met their mentor, Christian Cosentino, who raised the bar even higher and encouraged them to sing and compete on an international level.

After the victories in some local contests, in 2014 Chiara and Martina debuted on the Rai1 prime time talent show for teens ‘Ti lascio una canzone.’ After two winning nights, they qualified for the final night and earned third place.

The twins released their first single, ‘Sempre insieme,’ and represented Italy at the New Wave Junior contest, where they were the runners-up, missing victory by only one point. In December 2014 Chiara and Martina were invited to Moscow, where they performed with the renowned Cuban singer Roberto Kel Torres.

This year, their success continued; performing again on Rai1 and being invited back to New Wave Junior 2015 as special guests. They then won the Italian National Final for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, and are competing with their second single ‘Viva,’ written together with the best-selling artist Gigi D’Alessio.

‘Viva’ is about the dreams of the teens, their first love and new emotions. But it is also the sweet memories of their grandfather, who was the first to #discover their talent. “Remembering our grandad is the verse we like the most,” the twins explain. “It’s only a few words, but it means a lot to both of us and we know that he is still here with us.”

Chiara and Martina hope to do their very best in Bulgaria. “After winning the national final the affection of the people overwhelmed us: it’s like an army of fans that we didn’t expect to have. We must do our best for them too: we’d like to have fun and to make them have fun as well!”

Lyrics of Viva

Non vedo l’ora che sia già domani
Avere il mondo chiuso tra le mani
L’amore che conta
Un’onda nei sogni miei

Abbiamo tutto per poter volare
Ma non sappiamo ancora dove andare
La vita è un mare che ci gira intorno
La notte ed il giorno
E il sole dentro di noi

Viva le speranze che non vuoi mollare
Viva le canzoni che non sai cantare
Le nostre illusioni
Gli errori di gioventù
Viva il primo bacio che ti fa tremare
Viva quella lacrima che sa di sale
Il sabato sera
Evviva la tua boy band

Viva le carezze del nonno che adesso è lassù
Viva l’aquilone che un giorno ho perso nel blu

Ridere tanto fino a stare male
Sentirsi grandi per poter partire
Seguire quello che ci dice il cuore
Studiare l’inglese
Life is right now… for us

Viva quel tramonto che ti fa sognare
Viva l’autostrada che ti porta al mare
Il nostro orizzonte
Le sponde dell’anima
Viva quel discorso che non sai capire
Viva quell’estate che non vuol finire
Evviva l’amore
Evviva la libertà

Viva le serate a suonare intorno a un falò
Viva la tua prima conquista

Viva le bugie che non riesci a dire
E il segreto che tu non sai mantenere
L'uscita da scuola
L’attesa per il week-end
Vivi tutto quello che un giorno ti ricorderai
Vivi perché il tempo che passa non si ferma mai
Can't wait for tomorrow
having the world in my hands
a love that matters
a wave in my dreams

we have everywhere to fly
but we still don't know where to go
Life is an ocean spinning around us
day and night
and the sun inside us

Viva the hopes that you don't let go
Viva the songs you don't know how to sing
our dreams
the mistakes of our youth
Viva the first kiss that makes you quiver
Viva that tear that tastes like salt
saturday night
Viva your boy band

Viva the kindness of grandfather who is now up there
Viva the kite that I have lost in the sky

Laughing hard until it hurts
Feeling mature to travel
listening what your heart says
studying english
Life is right here now for us

Viva that sunset that makes you dream
viva the highway bringing you home
our horizon
the shape of our soul
viva that thing you can't understand
viva that summer that doesn't want to end
Viva Love
Viva freedom

Viva the nights around a bonfire
viva your first boyfriend

Viva the lies you cannot tell
and the secret you cannot keep
Viva getting out school
waiting for the weekend

Live for all that you will remember one day
live, because time flies and never stops
