Cyprus: Tamta joins forces with Mente Fuerte in her new track ‘Den Eisai Edo’
Tamta, the Cypriot Eurovision 2019 representative, returns with a powerful collaboration with Mente Fuerte in her new single titled ‘Den eisai Edo’.
After her recent release of her EP ‘Awake’ Tamta returns to the music scene with her new single ‘Den eisai edo’ ( You’re not here) in which she joins forces with the internationally acclaimed artist Mente Fuerte. Mente is behind some of the international super hits as “Senorita” and “Caliente”.
Tamta’s new single along with its official music video have been released under the label of Minos Emi- Universal Music. The song has been written by Mente Fuerte and Sigma while behind the composition we find Mente Fuerte, Sigma and Obiedaz. Beyond and Obiedaz are the one responsible for the production of the song.
The official music video ‘Den Eisai Edo‘ has been produced by Crystal View and directed Alexander Stamatiadis. The video features Tamta and Mente as a seperated couple that find themselve in a party and once their eyes meet time freezes. The video conveys the rythmical, fresh, but melacholic the same time, tone of the song.
Tamta in Eurovision
In January 2007, Tamta participated in ERT’s national final to select the Greek representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007. This was Tamta’s first attempt to reach the Eurovision stage. She placed third out of the three participants with the ballad song With love, while Sarbel went to the Contest.
In 2019 Tamta was internally selected by the Cypriot broadcaster (CyBC) to represent Cyprus with her “Replay” behind of which was once again Alex Papaconstantinou while the whole creative team behind the Cypriot entry included some of the most successful names of the music industry, Teddy Sky, Viktor Svensson, Albin Nedler and Kristofer Fogelmark.
Tamta competed in the first semi final in Tel Aviv and qualified to the Grand final where she eventually finished 13th with 109 points, marking the country’s second best result in the last decade, after Eleni Foureira’s 2nd place in 2018.
