Nikos Ksidakis (Greek: Νίκος Ξυδάκης) (1952 - ) is a Greek composer-musician. He was born in Cairo, Egypt. He lived there until 1963, when he came to Athens.
His music is largely affected by Egyptian and generally Middle-East music. He recorded his first LP “Τhe revenge of beggarliness” (Greek: “Η εκδίκηση της γυφτιάς”) in 1978 with lyricist Manolis Rasoulis (Greek: Μανώλης Ρασούλης) and singers Nikos Papazoglou (Greek: Νίκος Παπάζογλου), Demetres Kontogiannes (Greek: Δημήτρης Κοντογιάννης) and Sofia Diamanti (Greek: Σοφία Διαμαντή). This collaboration continued next year (1979) with the release of the album “Ta dithen” (Greek: “Τα δήθεν”). The innovation of these two albums that brought in Greek music was largely acknowledged as also their success.
Nikos Ksidakis has collaborated with great singers and musicians-lyricists such as Eleftheria Arvanitaki (Greek: Ελευθερία Αρβανιτάκη), Melina Kana (Greek: Μελίνα Κανά), Nikos Papazoglou (Greek: Νίκος Παπάζογλου), Glykeria (Greek: Γλυκερία), Thodores Gones (Greek: Θοδωρής Γκόνης), Michales Ganas (Greek: Μιχάλης Γκανάς) etc.
