Niko,Alabina(she is also known as Ishtar) is the
Israeli singer living in France, her real name is
Eti Zach. And there exist also hebrew version
of Anna Vissi's "Eleni".
: The song filakia, was actually first recorded by a Turk. His name is Tarkan, and the song is called Simarik. If you look on the back cover of Pantazis album, you will see Simarik in parentheses next to the song title filakia. The song is heavier on the drums (better for tsiftetelia), but I think the Greek singing sounds better. Actually there are many songs that Greek singers redo from the Middle East (mostly arabic), and vice versa. The new song on Garbi's latest single "Mavro h aspro", is actually a pretty old Arabic song (I think its called "Bahebik"). There is a singer called Alabina, who is of Middle Eastern and Spanish origin. She has also recently done this song, and another one "Habibi de Mis Amores" that the Greek girl group Kaka Koritsia ("Mou lipi h angalia tou..." has done. I have many Middle Eastern friends, so we always argue over who wrote the songs first. I recently heard that a Turkish singer was going to redo Vissi's song "Eleni".
