Her name is inseparably connected to the Eurovision Song Contest as she has appeared on its stage 6 times; 3 times as a backing vocalist (in 1983, 1986 and 1987) and 3 as the main artist (in 1992, 1994 and 2007). We’re of course talking about the Cypriot singer Evridiki, who until today remains one of the most vocal names of the Greek and Cypriot music industry. The former Eurovision participant is back one year after releasing her latest single Mia mera ksypnisa (Someday I woke up).
An album with duets for Evridiki
According to reports, the Cypriot artist is going to join forces with several Cypriot and Greek Eurostars before the release her new album, titled 25 gia panta (Forever 25). The new special release will consist of re-performances of some of her older hits in special duets. These are going to be alongside:
- Sofia Vossou (Greece 1991)
- Katy Garbi (Greece 1993)
- Despina Olympiou (Cyprus 2013)
- Demy (Greece 2017)
The album will also feature some national final participants, such as Peggy Zina (Greece 2002) and Tamta (Greece 2007).
Several different pictures of Evridiki with all the mentioned above artists have been posted on social media, serving as precursors to the upcoming collaborations. Of course it’s no coincidence that almost all pictures have been taken in recording studios!
The 1996 and 2002 (as part of group ONE) and 2005 (as solo artist) Constantinos Christoforou is going to be a vocalist for all the album entries.
The latest participation of Evridiki at Eurovision was back in 2007 in Helsinki, alongside Dimitris Korgialas. The duet saw their electropop francophone entry Comme ci, comme ça. Despite being one of the hot favourites for that year’s contest, the entry was eliminated in the Semi-Final, coming 15th with 65 points.
Here is Evridiki’s and Dimitris Korgialas’ act at the Hartwall Arena:
So, what do you think about Evridiki’s new music step?
