Gianna Fafaliou

Today with the topic culture I would like to introduce to you a musician. A woman, which is at the moment a quite hot topic on Chios. She has her origins on Chios and is know Greek-wide.
 I firstly got to know about her through her daughter, whom I taught while working here in the Chios’ school.


Maria Callas

Do you know Maria Callas, the most renowned and influential opera singer of the 20th century?  Maria Callas was born Cecilia Sophia Anna Maria Kalogeropoulos on December 2, 1923, in New York. She was the Greek-American soprano.


Pantelis Thalassinos

Pantelis Thalassinos is a Greek singer who was born in Piraeus in 1958. While his mother came from the island Serifos, his father was born on Chios. This is why the family moved to Chios when Pantelis was two years old. He went to school there and started playing the guitar at the age of seven, together with his brother Giannis. Their father's co-workers from the local yacht club taught them.
