Zoe Papadopoulou, vocals

Zoe Papadopoulou was born in Thessaloniki and grew up with the sounds of a velvet-sounding accordion and the singing of her artistic family. Ever since she was a little girl had the dream of becoming a professional singer and this dream came true. After graduating from College, she started singing at clubs in Thessaloniki, Greece, where she grew up. That was the place where the famous Greek singer Dimitris Mitropanos heard her singing and immediately invited her to go to Athens and participate in the summer music concert tour he had organized! That was eleven years ago!
In 2002, Zoe Papadopoulou came to Athens, where she immediately started a series of exceptional music collaborations and she appeared on stage with famous and extraordinary Greek artists, as Dimitris Mitropanos, Haroula Alexiou, Yannis Kotsiras, Eleftheria Arvanitaki, Kostas Makedonas etc. Three years later, her first album was released, titled “Krystalla kokkina filia”, which was produced by Haroula Alexiou. The album was a great success and the duet song of both Haroula Alexiou and Zoe Papadopoulou, “Ah kai na se iha edo” was the one that mostly stood out, as it combined the voices of two great singers.
In 2008, her second album, titled “Τatouaz”, was released. The homonymous song was a great hit, once again with the lyrics of Haroula Alexiou, who has not stopped believing in her. From then and on, Zoe has been invited by many music festivals and clubs, where she has presented her own live concerts marking her personal music path.
This is Zoe … a born artist, a singer that wants nothing more but to tell music stories from the heart!

The European Festivals Association (EFA) has been uniting distinguished music, dance, theatre and multidisciplinary arts festivals from Europe and beyond for more than 60 years.Thanks to EFA’s history and the continuous support of its members, EFA was chosen to implement the pilot project EFFE by the European Commission.

                The first of EFFE’s initiatives is a quality label. This label is given to festivals with an artistic commitment, involvement in their local communities and a European and global outlook.

                Gyzi Megaron Festival has been selected to receive the EFFE Label 2015-2016. It is now part of the EFFE Platform, initiated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level. The Label recipients represent 31 European countries and offer a wide range of genres and activities to their audiences.

2016 has been defined as Greece’s Year in Russia and Russia’s Year in Greece, by an agreement formed as a joint statement, signed by the two countries in October 2013.

                This year aims to build useful partnerships of mutual benefit with substantial development in both countries’ cultural, scientific, business and social relations, expanding Greek accessibility in Russian society, especially the province, opening up new areas of cultural, scientific, academic and business cooperation, and seeking new markets for tourism, Greek products and Greek innovative productivity.
