Born in Chisinau, Moldova, Arsenium decided at a very early age that he wanted to be a musician. He listened to Russian music first, and soon he started to write and compose his own songs.
He attended singing school, where they encouraged him to follow a career in opera due to his vocal capacities but he chose to go into pop instead. There he came to know Dan Balan and Radu Sirbu and they formed the famous boys band O-Zone, responsible for the phenomenon “Dragostea Din Tei”, also known as “Numa numa nei”, one of the biggest music hits of all times. They sold millions and their album DISCO ZONE was released worldwide.
After O-Zone split in January 2005, Arsenium initiated his solo career. One year later he released his first album “The 33rd Element”. Several singles like “Love me love me”, “Loca”, “Remember me” and “Rumadai” achieved outstanding success especially in France, Germany, East of Europe and Russia. Soon after he was chosen to represent his home country Moldavia in Eurovision Song Contest 2006 where he performed the catchy hit “Loca” with Natalia Gordienko.
In 2014 he took part in the famous Festival de la Canción Viña del Mar, in Chile. The jury of the most prestigious South American song contest gifted Arsenium’s performance of “Rumadai” with the Viña del Mar Best Male Singer Award 2014.
Last year 2015 has been another step up in his career. The catchy fresh summer song “Bella Bella” was released worldwide and kept him busy touring throughout the south of Europe during the hot season and being a guest in several festivals. Back to the East, the two main Russian Music TV channels like RUTV and MUZTV nominated his duet song with Sati Kazanova “Do Rassveta” (“Por que te amo” in the English version) to the Best Duet Award . Finally in November he achieved the prestigeous “Zolotoy Grammofon” Award thanks to the votes of thousand of fans.
Currently Arsenium is fully immerse in the great and sometimes difficult creative process. He is working hard to come out with beautiful songs to offer to the world very soon!
