"Nikos, we suddenly grew up…

What we left in the middle I will complete in I promise….

My Maria and Emanuella left me HAPPY

"Free again, everywhere and nowhere, what I love will be saved and I will come out of the world in the beginning…" wrote, among other things, the singer, saying goodbye to him.

Who was Nikos Antipas?

Nikos Antipas entered the Greek discography initially as a drummer with Jonathan, later with the band Sunset and then the famous Socrates.

In 1985 he made a sensation with the release of "Hot Drinks" by the Katsimiha brothers, in his own orchestration.

In 1991 he undertook the orchestration of the album "I live outside" by Eleftheria Arvanitaki. "Nikos did not just orchestrate. Re-compose. This is the right term for his presence on this album ", the singer wrote in the insert of the album.

The work, however, that marked his career was the album "Like a volcano that wakes up", with lyrics by Lina Nikolakopoulou and with the singer Protopsalti. The album was a huge success while in 1998 it is presented in the form of a musical performance directed by Dimitris Papaioannou.

It was preceded, in 1992, by the also successful Di 'Evchon, again with lyrics by Lina Nikolakopoulou, this time with Haroula Alexiou as the singer.

This was followed in 1994 by "Hey!" with Charoula Alexiou, in lyrics by Lefteris Papadopoulos, Aris Davarakis and Alexiou herself.

In his career he collaborated, either as a composer or as an orchestrator, with the big names of Greek discography, including Thanos Mikroutsikos, George Dalaras, Nana Mouskouri, Marinella, Dimitris Bassis, Eleonora Zouganeli.
