Short biographical note of the performer

Eleni Tsaligopoulou | voice

Eleni Tsaligopoulou is a Greek singer and composer whose presence has marked the popular/ethnic Greek song scene over the past 30 years. Eleni cannot be confined within a genre – she is just as comfortable with western pop style songs as she is with ethnic music and enjoys experimenting with traditional forms, blending styles and rhythms. She recently joined up with Boğaz musique, forming a creative group that does not hesitate to tamper with existing music forms, bridging the old with the new and western with eastern sounds. Eleni’s discography and concerts include collaborations with some of the most important composers and singers of Greek song, including Manos Hadjidakis, Yiorgos Andreou, Nikos Portokaloglou and Kostas Kaldaras.
