The colourful neoclassical mansions of Gialos port on Symi island provide a  dramatic backdrop for singer Amanda Tenfjord and actor Nicolas Melachrinidis, seen in two screenshots from the music video for Die Together

 

Scenery to die for: The official music video for Die Together, Greece’s entry in the 2022  Eurovision Song Contest, has us wishing we could hop on a boat and sail to Symi.

The island’s port town, Gialos,  plays a supporting role in the video, which stars singer Amanda Georgiadis Tenfjord and actor Nicolas Melachrinidis. But for us, the picturesque harbour and the Gialos hillsides lined with colourful neoclassical mansions were total scene-stealers, capturing our attention far more than the music and the video’s two performers. 

Don’t read us wrong — we do like Amanda Tenfjord’s song. But the video’s background scenery is what really wows us. Watching the 3-minute film, we can’t help but imagine how breathtaking it must be to sail into Gialos and see the impressive surroundings in person. We hope we get that opportunity sometime.
