Dreams do come true for some people, and in Yianna Terzi’s case, she’s representing Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest. “Óneiró mou” (My Dream) has won her a new fanbase. And rightly so: It’s an enchanting and polished ethnic ballad, and most importantly of all, it hasn’t been disqualified. For all those excited Grecophiles, we have good news – Yianna has released the music video for her entry. More Greek ethnic realness is coming up right now.
Like the song, the video is full of Greek charm and dreaminess. Yianna sings passionately, while dressed in a white robe and trapped in a black room. Meanwhile, an unknown man in ragged clothes chases something across some gorgeous Greek mountains. In the end, the man begins anxiously digging a hole in the ground. He reaches down, grabs onto Yianna’s arm, and pulls her up. Romantic! The video is very well-shot, giving much focus to the luscious Greek landscape, and smacks of tender feelings and artistry. It complements the ethnic but also incredibly romantic and passionate song well. Simple but effective.

It perhaps gives us some insight into how this song will be staged. Wonderful ethnic music combined with the stunning scenery is hard to resist, so count us in.
