He did not have the silkiest, most melodious voice in the world. His songs often had difficult lyrics to remember. He did not have Brad Pitt looks or a well built body. Yet, Dimitris Mitropanos was the Zeibekiko king for the last 20 years at least. An unadorned, honest,no frills, genuine performer Mitropanos filled any stage with his down to earth charm and art. Because besides being a great popular singer Mitropanos was also a true artist. He chose his songs well and kept away from the easy one week hits. He enjoyed his work and shared his enjoyment with his audience.

He often danced his zeibekiko songs on stage and looked like a bird poised to fly but tied down to earth. An unforgettable performer difficult to describe but so easy to love.
