Biography

Eftichia Papagianopoulos (Greek: Ευτυχία Παπαγιαννοπούλου), also spelled as Eftihia Papagianopoulou, (1893-1972) was a Greek lyricist.
She was born in Aidini near Smyrna (now İzmir) in Asia Minor in 1893. She left Smyrna in 1919 because of the Greek-Turkish war; just three years before Smyrna's disaster in 1922 by the Turks. She came in Greece and settled permanently in Athens.
She is the lyrics' writer of many very popular Greek songs. She co-operated with many composers like Vassilis Tsitsanis, Apostolos Kaldaras and Manos Hadjidakis; however she never became very famous in the greater public until her death in 7 January 1972. Her great offer to the Greek music through her exceptional ability in writing lyrics wasn't broadly known and recognized, however more and more people start learning that many of the successful songs of 1950s and 1960s belong to her.
A recent (2002) book written by the lyricist and journalist Lefteris Papadopoulos, who was a personal friend of Eftichia during the last years of her life, helped a lot for her work's recognition.
