Conan Osíris’s DNA is as Diverse as His Music

Portugal’s cryptic Eurovision entry this year, “Telémoveis,” combines elements from radically different ethnic and cultural traditions all over the world… and so, it turns out, does the DNA of its performer, Conan Osíris (born Tiago Miranda). A native of Portugal, it’s not surprising that Conan is 84.8% Iberian, but he’s also 9.5% North African, 3% Ashkenazi Jewish, 1.7% Central Asian, and 1% Nigerian!

We found 476 relatives of his in our records from 31 countries all over the world–there’s even one in Macau in the Far East! His closest match is from Great Britain, who is a 3rd, 4th, or 5th cousin.
