Broadcaster ERT has revealed that Marina Satti will represent Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö in 2024.
The acclaimed singer-songwriter will represent her nation on Greece’s 50th anniversary of their first Eurovision Song Contest participation.
The song has not yet been chosen, as ERT and Marina’s record label, Golden Records and Minos EMI (a Universal Music Company), alongside the singer herself, have invited potential submissions. From Wednesday 25 October, writers are invited to submit songs (in accordance with Eurovision Song Contest rules) for Marina by email.
Over her career, Maria Satti has developed a unique sound that combines the different musical traditions she grew up with, such as Greek, Arabic and Balkan.
Having represented Greece in the EBU’s Euroradio Jazz Orchestra with works by Peter Herbolzheimer; singing at the John F. Kennedy Center, in Washington with the World Jazz Nonet; and participating in the a cappella vocal group The Singing Tribe in collaboration with Bobby McFerrin, it’s safe to say that Marina is an artist who defies categorisation.
In May 2022, Satti released her first full-length album YENNA, while in 2023 she experimented by delivering the short documentary FLABOURO as well as TUCUTUM, a song-commentary on Balkan trap, which became viral in the summer.
The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Malmö, Sweden on Tuesday 7 May (First Semi-Final), Thursday 9 May (Second Semi-Final) and Saturday 11 May (Grand Final) 2024.
