Briefly about the artist: Eleni Tsaligopoulou launched her singing career in 1985 while studying music in Thessaloniki. Since then she has collaborated in live performances and also recorded with almost all leading songwriters and composers of Greece including the legendary Manos Hadjidakis (Never on Sunday), George Zikas, Stamatis Spanoudakis and others. In recent years Tsaligopoulou has also been writing songs and music. One recent distinct example is her hit “Trava Re Magka” (released in 2015) inspired by the original song under the same title from the rembetika era by Kostas Skarvelis.

Eleni Tsaligopoulou excels for her distinct voice, her talent of bringing together the different representative styles of Greek music and for her dynamic stage presence. Her band is comprised by some of the most renowned musicians and soloists with whom she collaborates for over two decades. In early 2015 Tsaligopoulou gave a new name to her music group calling it Bogaz Musique. Bogaz which means, “passing breeze” appropriately represents the group who just like a “ breeze of fresh air” they pass through bringing us the exceptional Greek music and songs performed in the most representative manner and with the use of traditional authentic music instruments. 

The upcoming and long awaited debut performance of Eleni Tsaligopoulou and Bogaz Musique at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College is not to be missed!
