Grigoris Bithikotsis (1922 – 2005) was a Greek folk singer/songwriter with a career spanning five decades. He is considered one of the most important figures in Greek popular music. He possessed a rich singing voice with which he performed his own compositions and those of Theodorakis, who frequently chose his friend Grigoris to perform his masterpieces. The two contributed greatly to the then-emerging laika style of Greek music. As a leftist, he was exiled to the island of Makronisos in the 1950s during the reign of King Paul.

 

Dimitris Mitropanos (Δημήτρης Μητροπάνος; 1948 – 17 April 2012) was a Greek singer. He was renowned for his mastery of Laiko, a Greek music style. He worked with some of the most renowned Greek composers, such as Mikis Theodorakis, Stavros Xarhakos, Manos Hatzidakis and Thanos Mikroutsikos
