From her humble beginnings in 1973 where she moved to Athens from Cyprus with her family, she won the Annual Song Contest in 1977 in Thessaloniki to then begin collaborating with the likes of George Dalaras and Haris Alexiou singing songs composed by Stavros Kouyioumtzis. In the 80s she began collaborating with Nikos Karvelas whom she married in 83. Dubbed Greek Rock Royalty by Patricia Fields, stylist to the cast of Sex and the City, Anna and Niko produced hit after hit from the 80s through to the new millennium where Anna developed her career further as singer/songwriter to TV presenter, stage performer in many musicals and rock operas before becoming an international sensation in 1997.
She represented both Cyprus and Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest only to gain further success worldwide and a loyal fan base. Her vocal abilities know no limits having recorded over 15 successful albums in the popular Greek Laiko, pop, rock and dance genres spanning over four and a half decades. A celebrated international vocalist and performer Anna Vissi is still producing successful sellout shows worldwide at age 61 today. Irene Vacondios and the band will be performing Anna’s hits from her early days to today hinting at setting a dance vibe for lovers of Anna’s Cuban flavoured ‘Lambo’ to her ‘rock opera’ power ballads and traditional popular Greek bouzouki favourites!
