Tamta hits the play button on 'Replay' for Cyprus

Posted

During their main news bulletin tonight, Cypriot Broadcaster CyBC revealed the official music video for their 2019 Eurovision Song Contest entry. 'Replay' is the song with which Tamta will represent the country at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv this coming May.

Replay is composed by an internationally distinguished team led by Alex Papaconstantinou (Alex P) and comprising of Teddy Sky, Kristoffer Fogelmark, Albin Nedler and Viktor Svensson. The music video was shot in Athens last week and features elements of fashion and contemporary aesthetics that reflect the image of Tamta as a fashion icon and an artist in the full sense of the term. The video is directed by Giannis Michelopoulos.

Tamta will perform in the first Semi-Final of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest on Tuesday 14th of May in Tel Aviv. The staging has been assigned to the acclaimed Creative Director and choreographer Sacha Jean-Baptiste, who was also responsible for Eleni Foureira's entry Fuego last year.

Cyprus in Eurovision

Cyprus debuted at the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest and finished in 6th place. A year later they took 5th place with the legendary Anna Vissi. They managed to equal that finish in 1997 and again in 2004 but never managed a better result until last year when Eleni Foureira's Fuego fired Cyprus to second place. This year Tamta will hope to continue Cyprus' recent Semi-Final record with a fifth consecutive qualification. More info..
