The song’s lyrics, written in three different languages, Greek, Pontic Greek and English, reefer to the refugees and financial crises.
Argo is formed by six members, Christina Lachana (lead singer), Maria Venetikidou (backing vocalist), Vladimiros Sofianidis (vocalist), Kostas Topouzis (Pontian lira), Ilias Kesidis (vocalist and percussion) and Alekos Papadopoulos (tabor). The Eurovision 2016 band was initially named Europond, but later changed the name as new members were added to the group. However, some of the artists involved are still components of the Greek band Europond.
