Giorgos Alkaios & Friends

Giorgos Alkaios will take his friends to Oslo and they'll give probably one of the most energetic performances of this year's Eurovision Song Contest. 

Giorgos Alkaios is one of the few Greek artists who holds the record for consecutive concerts during the last decade in Cyprus, Germany, England, Canada, Australia and in the USA. Over the years more than 300,000 people have watched Giorgos performing live.

Giorgos Alkaios is known to non-Greeks as well, due to his appearance in charts around the world.

Outside Greece he is considered as an ethnic artist, and for that he has been invited to perform in prestigious venues. 

His song Syrmatoplegma became the anthem of the famous football team Galatasaray, when the team won the transcontinental Cup and the UEFA cup.

His first platinum record abroad came from Sweden, when Antique performed his song Opa-Opa a top hit in charts around Europe.

Lyrics of OPA

Ekapsa to chtes, nychtes mou palies
Thrypsala oi anamniseis eginan ki aftes
Lypes kai fones, adikes efches
Ki afisa se mia gonia anoichtes pliges

Ekapsa to chtes, nychtes mou palies
Oneira kai efialtes richno stis foties
Dakrya kafta, psemata polla
Moiazoun sa vouvi tainia pou de vlepo pia


OPA!
Vazo mia fotia
S' ola ta palia
Ola tha t' allakso - OPA!
Kai tha to fonakso - OPA!
Perasmena ksehasmena ki ola ap' tin archi ksana - OPA!


Ekapsa to chtes, nychtes mou palies
Kai apo to miden archizo oso ki an de thes
Dakrya kafta, psemata polla
Plirosa osa chrostousa kai ta daneika


OPA!
Vazo mia fotia
S' ola ta palia
Ola tha t' allakso - OPA!
Kai tha to fonakso - OPA!
Perasmena ksehasmena ki ola ap' tin archi ksana - OPA!
I burnt the past, my previous nights
Shattered memories as well
Sorrows and voices, unfair wishes
And I left all open wounds aside

I burnt the past, my previous nights
Dreams and nightmares cast in the fire
Burning tears, lots of lies
All seem like a silent movie I no longer watch


OPA!
I set on fire
Everything that’s old
I will change everything – OPA!
And I’ll shout it out loud – OPA!
Let bygones be bygones, let’s start all over again – OPA!


I burnt the past, my previous nights
And I start from scratch, even if you don’t want it
Burning tears, lots of lies
I paid all my dues


OPA!
I set on fire
Everything that’s old
I will change everything – OPA!
And I’ll shout it out loud – OPA!
Let bygones be bygones, let’s start all over again – OPA!
