  • Aarzemnieki, or “Foreigners” in Latvian, was founded by German citizen Jöran Steinhauer in 2013.

    Eventually, members Guntis Veilands, Katrīna Dinanta, and Raitis Vilumovs joined the ranks.

    In 2013, Aarzemnieki released the song “Paldies Latiņam!,”  which quickly became a Youtube sensation. The group decided to further their career after by trying out for Latvia’s selection show for Eurovision “Dziesma 2014.”


  • Aarzemnieki submitted their song “Cake to bake” for consideration in the Latvian selection show “Dziesma 2014.” The group was quickly accepted and was announced as a semi-finalist.

    At the first semi-final, Aarzemnieki went on to qualify for the final, receiving the second-highest amount of points.

    At the final, Aarzemnieki landed at 2nd place, qualifying them for the super-final.

    Although only receiving the second-highest amount of votes from the jury and the internet, Aarzemnieki narrowly won the televote, securing them as Latvia’s representative at Eurovision 2014.


  • I melted the ice of the polar caps,

    found the raiders of the lost ark,

    solved a case for the genius from Baker Street,

    helped to clean the Central Park.

    I created the plan for the Chinese wall,

    went to desert, made it rain,

    swam through a shark tank bloodily,

    found Atlantis, by the way… (but today)

     

    I’ve got a cake to bake – I’ve got no clue at all (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)

    I’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)

    don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,

    go, come on and ask your mother,

    how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake…

     

    Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep cep cep cep kuuku

    Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep

     

    I talked to a unicorn the other night,

    took me up on a lonely star,

    did the moonwalk on the milky way,

    realised I’ve gone too far.

    So I questioned the law of gravity,

    put the apple back up to the apple tree,

    ej tu nost: I even learned Latvian,

    I know it’s so hard to believe… (and today)

     

    I’ve got a cake to bake – I’ve got no clue at all (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)

    I’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)

    don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,

    go, come on and ask your mother,

    how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake (piece of cake)

     

    Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep cep cep cep kuuku

    Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep

     

    We’ve got a cake to bake – and got no clue at all

    We’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before

    don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,

    go, come on and ask your mother,

    how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake (piece of cake)

     

    Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake, wait for it

    Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake, wait for it

    Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake, have some cake

    Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake

     

    We’ve got a cake to bake – and got no clue at all

    We’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before

    don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,

    go, come on and ask your mother,

    how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake

    (Garšīgi)
