Nana Mouskouri is one of the biggest selling female artists of all time. In a fifty year career, she has sold over 350 million records and sung in more than 15 languages.
The road that took her from her modest roots in Crete and Athens to international superstardom, reads like a script from a Hollywood movie; a bespectacled, plump, shy, child grows into one of the worlds most iconic female artists. Nana at first captivated audiences in the tavernas and nightclubs of Athens, singing Greek folksongs and compositions written for her by the respected Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis and lyricist Nikos Gatsos. One such song, Hartino to fengaraki (The Paper Moon) became a huge domestic hit and was followed by another Hadjidakis composition, Ta Pedia Tou Pirea (The Children Of Piraeus) Aka Never On A Sunday, from the film of the same name. Overnight, the movie sparked a huge interest in Greek music and culture and propelled Nana onto the world stage.
