Nana Mouskouri was born in Crete in 1934. Her parents worked in a local cinema; her father was a film projectionist and her mother an usherette. She was born with a singing voice and at a young age, sang on the stage in front of the cinema screen where her parents worked. Her parents’ persistence resulted in Mouskouri being enrolled in the prestigious Athens Conservatoire, where her singing skills could be honed. At the age of twelve, in 1950, she began her singing lesson and showed great promise. A year later, Greece was occupied by Nazi forces and went through civil war, a time which Mouskouri described as the saddest years of her life. However, she kept receiving her musical education and started developing an affinity for jazz music.
Much to Mouskouri’s chagrin, she was not allowed to sit for her final exam at the Conservatoire as her involvement with jazz music was against the Conservatoire’s rules. As a result, Mouskouri left the institution to sing jazz at night clubs. She initiated her professional career by recording her first song in 1957. Her career took a turn for the better when she met with Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis in 1958. Hadjidakis wrote songs for Mouskouri and their partnership resulted in hits such as “Agapi Mou”, “Punishment” and “Little Cypress”. These songs won first place at the Greek Song Festival and Mouskouri began to attract attention. Her international breakthrough came when she sang the song “White Roses from Athens” for a documentary. The song became highly popular in Germany.
Quincy Jones produced Nana Mouskouri’s first album in 1962, which was well received. With her soaring voice captivating audiences far and wide, she started releasing almost three albums a year. Her first international tour came in 1965 when she teamed up with American singer Harry Belafonte in the United States. Already a rising star, she rose to unprecedented popularity in France with her album “Le Jour Où la Colombe”. Mouskouri quickly adjusted to the superstar status and gave a historic performance at the Olympia Concert Theatre in Paris.
Nana Mouskouri got many opportunities to perform on television shows, which she availed. She started hosting a BBC production, “Presenting Nana Mouskouri” in 1968. The show continued till 1976 and Mouskouri got the chance to play with many music stars from all over the world. She also got shows on German and French television channels, which made her a well-known TV personality as well. In 1987 she released five albums in different languages and visited many Asian countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and Singapore.
