Dimitris Mpasis

Dimitris Basis was born in Stuttgart. His parents lived in Germany for some years. He went to Greece for the first time at the age of eight when his entire family returned to Herso, a small village in Northern Greece.

At the age of nine, he started chanting the liturgy in the local church and three years later he began to study Byzantine music. He gained his diploma at the age of seventeen. At the same time he used to sing at many cultural celebrations.

When he was twenty years old just after his first steps in professional singing he was discovered by Stamatis Kraounakis and Warner Music company who immediately offered him a contract. For three continuous seasons he was singing with Alkistis Protopsalti, Stamatis Kraounakis and Lina Nikolakopoulou, and wrote history due to his musical performances under the music director Andreas Voutsinas.

Since then he has worked with collaborated with many well known singers, song-writers and composers such as Christos Nikolopoulos, Lina Nikolakopoulou, Dimitra Galani, Manolis Lidakis, Haris Alexiou, Yiannis Kotsiras, Stavros Xarhakos, Eleni Tsaligopoulou, Mikis Theodorakis, Maria Farantouri, Pashalis Terzis and Dimitris Mitropanos.

In the summer of 2003, he took part in a dedication to the poet Yiannis Ritsos –throughout Greece- with the “Mikis Theodorakis” Orchestra. The poems (“Epitaphios, Romiosini, Ta Dekaohto Lianotragouda tis Pikris Patridas, I Piites tou Kosmou) were composed by Mikis Theodorakis.

In May 2005, he took part in the celebrations in honour of the eightieth birthday of the famous composer Mikis Theodorakis. The titles of the songs which he sang were “The Songs of Passion and Love”. These celebrations took place during the “Greek Festival” in Herod Atticus Odeon.

In the same year’s summer he departed for the first time on a successful solo tour at selected cities around Greece.

We will be lucky to see him, performing live his latest great hits.

Despina Vandi is considered one of the top Greek and International performers in the world. Beginning her career in 1994, for more than 2 decades she has achieved record sales on her multi-platinum recordings, racked up 25 awards, boasts ten international releases and a Billboard No. 1 as she won the US Billboard Hot Dance Airplay with her album “Geia!” (“Hello!”). She is indeed one of Greece’s largest and most loved commercial exports.

 


Despina received her first major award in 2000 from the director of Virgin Megastores, London, for the success of her CD single “Ypofero” (“I Am Suffering”), as the best-selling CD of all time in Greece. In 2001, for her album “Geia!” (which went 4 times Platinum within just eleven days) she won World’s Best Selling Artist at the World Music Awards held in Monte Carlo, marking the first time this was awarded to a Greek artist. For the same album and tracks from it, she received prestigious accolades from Portugal and Russia. Despina followed up with more multi-platinum discs, sold-out concerts in Europe, America and Australia, collaborations with international DJs and world-renowned producers such as Armand Van Helden, Milk & Sugar, Nick Skitz, Roger Sanchez and German electronic impresario, Schiller.

 


Despina Vandi is also a star of the small screen, starting in 1999, in the role of Haroula, in the television series “Two Foreigners” which received raving reviews at the time. In 2013 and in 2014, together with Greek actor Giorgos Kapoutzidis, Despina co-hosted the Greek final song selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Later, in 2016, she hosted the 6th “MadWalk” (MAD TV) with resounding success! Despina Vandi was one of the four “legend” coaches in the TV talent show “The Voice” of Greece (2014-2015), and was the winner coach in the first year. She returned to the judging panel for a new format primetime TV talent show “Rising Star” of Greece.

 


From the small screen to the stage, and her participation in the hit musical MAMMA MIA was her first step into musical-theater. Despina Vandi, interpreting her role as Donna Sheridan, grabbed headline reviews and won the hearts of critics and audiences alike, opening a new chapter to her multidimensional and highly successful artistic career.
