Less than a month to go until the WFC2019 and now the official WFC song has been published! The song is made by local artist David Charles, a.k.a. MC Roger, a citizen of Neuchatel and is a parody on the popular song Djadja by Aya Nakamura.
To the organization, the artist says: “Frankly, it is a Women’s World Championships here. The song chose me, not the other way around. I heard it everywhere I went, on the radio, on TV, on the Internet. In my head, the ‘Oh djadja’ very quickly became ‘Oh tshak tshak’ and in my mind’s eye, I already saw the choreography with the floorball sticks.”
The text tells the story of how he catches the floorball virus and how he can hardly wait until the World Championships gets started. This thrill of anticipation is meant to be passed on to everyone who hears the song. The entire song is in French, as it’s primarily meant for the people of the region Romandie who will be made aware of the major event that will be taking place in their area.
David Charles will perform the WFC song live at the Patinoires du Littoral rink at the opening ceremony on Saturday, December 7, prior to Switzerland’s match against Germany.
