Greek New Wave artist Lakis Pappas dies aged 76

Lakis Pappas, one of the leading singers of Greece’s so-called New Wave, died on Wednesday at the age of 76.

Pappas worked with composer Manos Hatzidakis in the early 1960s and gradually became drawn to the New Wave style, which emerged in the mid-1960s and combined Greek music with French chansons.
