PRESS RELEASE 1.09.16
Tango Blues video clip release!
Jazz Arts & Communications proudly announces the release of the new video clip Tango Blues, a new jazzy blues tune written by jazz singer Sarah Fenwick and guitarist Marinos Neofytou. The video clip features the talented Cypriot dancer and choreographer Elena Shakalli.
Tango Blues comes from the duet’s CD Jazz Origins and is directed by Savvas Hadjigeorgiou. It tells the story of a man and woman who want to be together, and go out until daybreak at night looking for each other, but don’t manage to be in the same place at the same time. Tango Blues is about having a relationship with someone who is not available.
The choreography was created by Elena Shakalli, who dances beautifully with an imaginary partner – a partner she waits for endlessly, but who never shows up to meet her. The imaginary partner dances a tango with Elena – from a distance.
Watch the video below!
The clip was filmed in Η Μπουατ, on St. Andrew’s Street in Limassol. An atmospheric café/bar housed in a beautiful, traditional 250-year-old building, it comes with a fascinating story. It belonged to an old, sick woman who left it in gratitude to her good friend who brought her water when she was ill and did not leave her all alone when she needed help.
Like Sarah Fenwick’s previous video clip Black Orpheus filmed in the Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios museum in Nicosia, Tango Blues highlights the beauty, history and variety of Cyprus’ rich architectural heritage.

The duet teamed up in 2013 and recorded Jazz Way, a CD with a mixture of standards and originals that was immediately loved by jazz fans.
Marinos Neofytou writes from the heart, creating strong compositions while playing the guitar like a master. This talented musician also plays the bass, saxophone and drums, but his first love is the guitar. In addition to being a music educator, Neofytou has been active on the live jazz scene in Cyprus since 1991.
In 2014, Sarah Fenwick started using her improvisational skills to write jazz melodies. She creates bluesy melodies, lyrics and harmonies that work beautifully with Neofytou’s compositions.
