Written by Team Balkanika on 25.06.2020
The popular Greek singer and composer Giorgos Sabanis reveals in his new video “Agria Thalassa” the difficult road with all the obstacles he had faced to get where is he now.
The music of the song is signed by Giorgos Sabanis himself with his exceptional mastery and the lyrics belong to the top lyricist Eleana Vrachali, a duo that has submitted its credentials and guarantees success.
The music video “Agria Thalassa” brings to our screens a rare document from the past with special emotional value: The participation of Giorgos Sabanis as an athlete in the opening ceremony for the 2004 Olympic Games, which took place in Athens. Sixteen years later, Sabanis visits the tartan of the Athens Olympic Stadium again, a place full of history that floods him with nostalgic memories.
The beloved artist wears the uniform and remembers the agony and tension, the joy and the disappointment, all the ambiguous feelings that an athlete feels.
The music video completes a look back at unpublished snapshots from Giorgos Sabanis past in sports, where he had won 14 gold national medals before his love for music finally won him over.
The video captures the singer’s road race with obstacles, who from a young age dreamed of and chased opportunities, distinctions and overcoming. A life course like “Agria Thalassa” and a born champion who has gone through the waves to get here.
The director is Dimitris Ganios and the screenplay is inspired by Soumka.
