Voltaj is not an unknown band in Romania, as they have been ongoing for over 20 years, winning music awards and been on the charts. They have been touring through several other European countries as well, like Moldova, Italy, Ireland, and this years hosting country for Eurovision, Austria. The pop-rock band has even received the Best Romanian Act award at the MTV EMA’s back in 2005.
