Greek goddess Despina Vandi visits Emperors Palace


29 March 2012


A striking voice, gorgeous looks and natural stage presence has positioned her as one of the most popular Greek artists to emerge, and now for the first time in South Africa, sensational Greek performer, Despina Vandi, will perform an unforgettable show at the home of international Greek artists, Emperors Palace this May.

Supported by Christos Menidiatis, an up-and-coming Greek singer, Vandi will pair-up with the hunk to create the ultimate duo, providing an evening of entertainment inclusive of a delicious three course meal.

After ten years of hard work, 12 albums and numerous live performances, Vandi is ready to shake, rattle and blow Emperors Palace away. Her single lpofero became the best-selling single of all-time in Greece and she won three Arion Music Awards, ten MAN Video Music Awards, seven Pop Corn Music Awards and a World Music Award. This made her the first Greek artists recording in Greece to ever win the award.

Vandi, whose name has been chanted across Europe for over a decade, started her music career in the early 1990s and went multi-platinum in 1999 when she incorporated pop elements into her music, as well as adopting a more pop image.
