Rim Tim Tagi Dim: Baby Lasagna has won the hearts from the largest stage in Europe

Marko Purišić, better known by his stage name Baby Lasagna, is the Croatian representative at this year's Eurovision Song Contest that takes place in Malmö, Sweden.

This young talented musician hails from Umag, located on the north-western coast of Istria, and he and his song Rim Tim Tagi Dim have become a real hit among fans of the competition for the best song in Europe.

Rim Tim Tagi Dim tells the story of a young man who anxiously leaves his small rural area and heads to big Europe. Baby Lasagna himself wrote the lyrics and music, and the music video, filmed at several gorgeous locations throughout Istria, was directed by a young artist, his girlfriend Elizabeta Ružić from Kaštelir, another interesting small Istrian town.

The rhythm is catchy so everyone in Croatia already knows the song by heart, and the Eurovision semi-final, as well as the final, showed that it has also gained numerous fans across Europe!

Marko nearly reached the Eurovision throne in the finals, but we are as proud as if he had, because Baby Lasagna has captivated the audience and captured the hearts of fans around the world!

Bravo Marko!
Congratulations on a fantastic success!
