About Tamta

The making of Tamta’s official music video

Tamta is amongst the most sought after artists in Greece today having released released numerous albums and singles throughout her career.

The Georgian-born Greek artist attempted to partake at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 when she competed at the Greek national final with her entry With love. Then in 2015 she tried to go to Eurovision again but was not able to compete in the Greek national final as she missed the submission deadline reportedly with Alex P’s Unloved.

The Athens based star  was selected via an internal selection in order to fly the Cypriot flag at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv with her entry Replay.

Tamta’s Eurovision entry has been composed by none other than Alex Papaconstatinou, whilst Sacha Jean-Baptiste will be responsible for her staging in Tel Aviv.

Cyprus in Eurovision

Cyprus joined at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981 with the group Island, achieving an honorable 6th placing in Dublin.

Aphrodite’s island has been represented by some of the biggest names in the Greek and Cypriot music industry: Anna Vissi (1982), Michalis Hatzigiannis (1998), Evridiki (1992,1994,2007), Ivi Adamou (2012), Despina Olympiou (2013), etc.

The country achieved its best Eurovision result this year when it placed 2nd with Eleni Foureira’s Fuego. The Athens-based mega-star was selected internally to fly the Cypriot flag at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. Eleni made Cyprus proud with her magnificent and dazzling performance at the Altice Arena.

In 2019 Tamta will defend the Cypriot colours at the Eurovision Song Contest with he entry Replay. Cyprus is set to compete in the first half of the First Semi-final of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest on 14 May in Tel Aviv, Israel.
