Roses Blanches De Corfou - Nana Mouskouri

Roses Blanches De Corfou
"With my songs I tried to prove that there is love." Nana Mouskouri
Nana Mouskouri. Greek singing legend and inspirational jet-setting philanthropist; she of trademark dark-rimmed glasses with long raven hair parted down the centre. A remarkable woman who worked her way up from humble beginnings with irresistible charm and style to become one of the world's most popular divas.
Born Ioanna (Nana is her nickname) in Crete, she moved at the age of three to Athens, where her father, a movie projectionist, was a resistance fighter during the Second World War. Nana started taking classical voice lessons when she was 12 but was expelled from the Athens Conservatory when (horror of horrors) it was discovered she’d been singing with a jazz group at night.
Nana overcame her disappointment; she continued to frequent Athens' bohemian circles where she would meet the famous Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis. He offered to write songs for her, a huge compliment. Almost at once, the young singer enjoyed domestic hits and swept all before her at song festivals in Athens and Barcelona.
While these early successes quickly established her around the Mediterranean, she was beginning to be noticed by European record labels, eventually signing with the Paris-based Fontana. Nana's involvement in the German film documentary Greece, Land of Dreams resulted in her recording the single Weiße Rosen aus Athen ("White Roses of Athens"), a song originally adapted by Hadjidakis from a folk melody. It went Gold in Germany, selling over a million copies. It would be re-recorded in French,
English, Spanish and Italian; the first major international success of Nana's career.
