He was born at Xanthi, on the 13th of October and was raised in a neighbourhood among poor people, yet with rich sentiments. The loss of his parents, turned out to be a turning point in his life, which is something that forced him to be lonely among three sisters, at a very sensitive age. These were coincidences that forced Zafiris to struggle in life since his early childhood. However, through this ceaseless struggle, he was given the chance to express the bursting vigour that distinguishes him, the endless love he has for the fellow-beings and of course, the unique tamperament of his, regarding music and singing. These years, composed the stamp of his creativity.
Since an early age, his inclination about music and song, was distinguished. Thus, he was found, later, singing in groups of folkloric songs. There, he learnt and loved the folk songs. Through this singing-wandering, he was 'detected' by Antonis Stamboulis and Poly Vairemidi, the owners of record company - Cosmos.
