Eurovision 2022: Marina Satti For Greece? ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท

After several years of disappointing results ranging from non-qualification to bottom 5 in the grand final, 2021 marked the first Greek Top 10 result since 2013, when Koza Mostra & Agathon Iakovidis placed 6th in Malmรถ.

Will ERT aim to capitalise from Stefaniaโ€™s success moving forward into 2022? And could Marina Satti go one step further?

Marina Satti is a Greek star with Sudanese roots. Her diverse and multi-cultural upbringing in Crete has very clearly inspired her sound and artistry for today.

Her breakthrough single in 2016 โ€œKoupesโ€ received notable coverage, and to date has amassed over 25 million views on YouTube. The song is Marinaโ€™s take on a traditional Asia Minor โ€˜maqamโ€™ (meaning: standard) – and the result was extremely interesting.

Fast forward to 2017, and Marinaโ€™s follow-up release brought even more success her way. Mantissa was a summer hit in Greece, the inspiring message of the song conveys hope and perseverance – while the music video sends out a clear message of female empowerment – with an impressive 49 million views to date it is considered one of the biggest Greek hits of the last decade.

In a recent interview with VICE Greece the star hinted at being open to a potential Eurovision participation in the future, but did still raise concerns about whether or not sheโ€™d โ€œfitโ€ into the contest.
