The DJing duo are known for their fusion of rock, pop and dance genres, and have collaborated with the likes of Swedish Eurovision legend Benjamin Ingrosso and global megastar Ed Sheeran, as well as the iconic Ella Henderson on their latest banger Hurricane.

'The fact we’re able to do this together is the most amazing thing, ’ says César.

Dorian adds: 'We share everything in our lives, and it’s a great experience to be with someone who understands you. Most DJs don’t have that.’

Ofenbach working the steps

Like the participants of Junior Eurovision, the twosome began their path to stardom early on, having met in a school corridor both aged 11.

César is a classically-trained pianist and drummer in his spare time, while Dorian is a singer and guitarist.

'Whenever we record a song, we’re trying to find a good idea. We take our guitar and do something. But when we feel something, we stop on the melody. Then we try to compose around the emotion we felt at that moment’ says César.

Dorian continues: 'It’s like a lottery, but the more you play the more chance you have to win something good.’

With so much global success under their belts and plenty more to come, Ofenbach are the perfect pair to open Junior Eurovision and inspire our young participants to imagine what they too can achieve.
