Dress Code: Anything
Mihalis Hatzigiannis is one of the most succesful young singer in Greece. He was born on 5/11/78. in Nicosia of Cyprus. He has a degree on classical guitar, piano and theoritican studies at the Musical Academy Of Cyprus (Royal College Of London).
In 1998 he represented his country in the Eurovision contest by singing the song "Genesis" of which the music is his. It took the 11th place.On March 2001 Mihalis got the award for the Best First Appearing Artist for 2000.
Thanks to my greek friend Giorgos I have almost all cds of Mihalis. I love his sweet voice and nice songs (even if I don't understand greek language rather good). I saw him in Zigos Music Center in Athens in 2003 (the concert was one of many presents made by my boyfriend for my birthday! Efxaristo!) and he was singing for Closing Ceremony of Athens Olympic Games in 2004. Now this nice greek man is my favourite greek singer!
Alkistis Protopsalti is one of the most important artists in Greece. I love her voice and I had a chance to see her in Heraklion (Crete) on august,2003 for the great celebration of "One year before the Olympic Games". Her performance was wonderful and I still listen to my favourite song of her: "Trava Skandali"
Elly Paspala (her Romanized name - also known as "Elli" or "Eli") is a Greek singer who sits firmly between the genres of pop and jazz.
I saw her during free concert not far from Acropolis in august 2004. Great voice...
Evridiki is a very popular singer in Greece and in spite of her "fragile" appearance she has a very strong voice! I had a chance to see her in live concert in Athens.
Evridiki was born on the 25th of February. She grew up in Lefkosia in Cyprus and she started studying music from her very early years. She has a very nice, Greek, sensational and rare, name known to everybody from the myth of Orfeas and Euridiki (Orfeus and Eurydice).
In 1992 she took part in the European song competition of Eurovision, on behalf of Cyprus, with the song "Tairiazoume" ("We Match").
