Emperors Palace will host the sensational Greek songstress Peggy Zina and singer Kostas Karafotis at their first duet concert in South Africa on 10 October.
While the performers have collaborated numerous times in the past, Kostas Karafotis’ first live collaboration was with Peggy Zina and Nino during the winter of 2004-2005 at the Apollo club in Greece. The two worked together again for a second season during the winter 2005 – 2006 at Diogenis Studio, until that Easter when he signed up for his new collaboration with Stamatis Gonidis for the summer of 2006.
Peggy Zina’s commercial success can be attributed to her fine folk voice and popular appeal. She has worked with many well-known Greek singers, including Paschalis Terzis, Notis Sfakianakis, Antonis Remos, Stelios Roccos, Sakis Rouvas, Yannis Ploutarchos and Nikos Kourkoulis. An artist with two platinum-selling albums, Peggy has more than nine albums under her belt and in 2008 released a Best of Peggy Zina DVD.
Kostas Karafotis started his music career in March 2005; and it was then that the qualified medical doctor worked with one of Greece’s most important composers, Antonis Vardis, who helped produce his first album, Ime etho – I am here, comprising 11 sensational songs. Thereafter Kostas’ musical career has soared. He has released two more commercially successful albums after his first in 2005, performing in all of Greece’s major cities and touring around the world.
The two singers bring their distinct vocals to every song that they perform; with Kostas’ rough-hewed voice complimenting Peggy’s silky vocals fans can look forward to a sizzling hot performance.
The exclusive gala concert will take place in the Centre Court at Emperors Palace and will include a sumptuous three-course meal. Tickets are priced at R800 and R1400 per person. For bookings, please call Africa Pacific Promotions 011 788 7514 or 011 788 7693.
