We are delighted to announce this year’s act…welcome to CyWineFest 2019 Peggy Zina!!!
CyWineFest has hosted countless Cypriot and Greek superstar singers in its 37 years, catering for a wide variety of audiences, from the legendary George Dalaras to last year’s top of the charts phenomena Konstantinos Argiros. CyWineFest’s hall of fame is impressive to say the least and this year, the team is very proud to announce a singer that appeals to a variety of audiences….
Peggy Zina; birth name Panagiota Calliope Chrysicopoulou was born in Ioannina in Greece on 8 March 1975. She began her love affair with music at the tender age of 5, showing an interest in performing by taking piano and dance lessons. In her late teens, she graduated from the prestigious Jeanne D’ Arc Academy and rose to become one of Greece’s most popular singers. She has over 20 years experience in the music industry and has released 13 studio albums, her first in 1995 and her latest album in 2018. She is a talent that is appreciated across the generations with over 38,000 subscribers on YouTube, over 500,000 followers on Facebook and over 35,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. She is an artist that has an impressive following on social media platforms but also appeals to fans pre-dating the mass social media age.
