Marina Satti – P.O.P

This week, we start powerfully with part one of our round-up, featuring Marina Satti, the proud representative of Greece in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. She brought her country back to the Grand Final and ended up in 11th place. Marina has just dropped her new album P.O.P, which contains seven songs that will bring the Greek summer vibe to your playlists. The album includes her Eurovision entry “Zari” and her mega-hit “TUCUTUM.” You’ll find a variety of songs, including a 10-minute mixtape made in collaboration with Lefteris Pantazis, VLOSPA, Oge, RACK, and Efi Thodi. The album concludes with a touching ballad called “Ah THALASSA,” showcasing Marina’s versatility.

She also gifted fans with a music video for her new track “LALALALA.” The music video is colorful, energetic, and filmed in an amusement park, serving as an invitation to feel good with its catchy chorus: “Lalala lalalala / Joy blows like a May breeze.” Like “Zari,” the song is an addictive pop tune with strong Greek influences that are simply mesmerizing.

Who is Marina Satti ?

Singer, songwriter and music producer Marina Satti was born in Athens, Greece, to a Sudanese father and a Cretan mother.

Marina graduated in classical piano, advanced music theory and classical singing before receiving a scholarship from the internationally acclaimed Berklee College of Music. At Berklee, she studied orchestration, production and jazz, while working with renowned artists, such as Danilo Perez and Jamie Haddad, among others. She has developed a unique sound that combines the different musical traditions she grew up with, such as Greek, Arabic and Balkan, with urban elements and rhythm.

Following the release of her debut album, “YENNA” (2022), Marina released “TUCUTUM” (2023), a Greek song that went viral and humorously references Balkan trap trends. She was later signed by Golden Records and Minos EMI, a Universal Music Company. Marina Satti will represent Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with the song “ZARI.”

She released her new album today.
