Nana Mouskouri sings Kapou iparhei i agapi mou, a very famous Greek song composed by Manos Hadjidakis, which translates to “My love must be out there somewhere”.
There is a long story and few gossips behind the song “Kapou iparhei i agapi mou“. It was the song that made Nana Mouskouri known in Greece. She sang it for the first time in 1959, during the Music Festival of Thessaloniki, and she won the first prize.
No one at that time knew Mouskouri, except for a few composers and lyric writers. She she was not famous or recognized by the majority of the Greeks, who were surprised to see this shy and intimidated girl on the stage of Thessaloniki with the magnificent voice, singing a song by Manos Hadjidakis.
A few months later, Mouskouri recorded the song and also sung it in the movie “Rendez vous in Kerkyra (Corfu)”. This performance was one of her rare – maybe the only one – without her eye glasses, that became some sort of trademark for her, since she begun her career in the Greek music.
