Meet Andromache, Cyprus representative in Eurovision 2022

This year Cyprus has chosen Andromache as its representative on Eurovision 2022 that will take place in Turin next May with the song “Ela”. But who is Andromache? In this article you will have the opportunity to know more about Cyprus’s singer for Eurovision 2022.

About Andromache

Andormache Dimitroupoulou, or better known only as Andromache, is a singer born on 12 October 1994 in Siegen, Germany. Music has always been present in her life, as her family comes from a long tradition of musicians. At the age of 10, her parents decided to return to Greece, from where they emigrated to Germany, in order to continue their daughter’s education there, in Lechaina.

After completing her secondary education, Andromache moved to the country’s capital, Athens, in order to study Germanic philology. After graduating, Andromache started singing in the music scenes of Lechenia and the Gazi district of Athens.

But it was not until 2015, when she participated in The Voice of Greece, that she started to become known throughout the country at the age of 20. Andromache took part in the second season of the talent show, and was on the team of the well-known Greek hip hop singer Michalis Kouinelis. She was eliminated in the second week of the live shows, but immediately signed with Panik Records.

In 2017, she released her first single, “To Feggari”, composed by Giorgos Papadopoulos, with this label, with which she already started to show her interest in ethnic style with pop touches. Between 2017 and 2021 Andromache has released 7 more singles, with which she started to leave the Greek market and expand into Europe.

“Ela” is a composition of big names in Greek music under the direction of Alex Papaconstantinou (Eurovision 2007, 2009, 2012, 2018 and 2019) consisting of Arash (Axerbaijan 2009), Eyelar Mirzazadeh, Albanian producer Fatjon Miftaraj, Filloreta Raci Fifi, Geraldo Sandell, well-known Cypriot composer and lyricist George Papadopoulos, Swedish composers and producers Robert Uhlmann and Viktor Svensson and Yll Limani.

Lyrics

A ντα να, έλα, έλα, έλα…
A ντα να, έλα, έλα, έλα…

Melodies ringing through my head when you lay eyes on me
The rush is from above, it feels so heavenly
Come and charge me up like electricity
My remedy

All in my, in my head
All in my lucid dreams
Take my pain away
Έλα έλα, έλα έλα

Στην αγκαλιά μου, ζήσε άλλη μια μέρα
Στην αγκαλιά μου, πάμε μαζί πιο πέρα
Στα όνειρά μου, βαλέ φτερά και πέτα
You could be my only one
Na-na-na-na-ni, αμάν

Ah-aah, ah-aah-aah
Έλα, έλα, έλα
Ah-aah, ah-aah-aah
Έλα έλα, έλα

Chemistry moving to the beat in perfect harmony
I’ll show you what it’s like beyond your fantasy
My remedy

All in my, in my head
All in my lucid dreams
Take my pain away
Έλα έλα, έλα έλα

Στην αγκαλιά μου, ζήσε άλλη μια μέρα
Στην αγκαλιά μου, πάμε μαζί πιο πέρα
Στα όνειρά μου, βαλέ φτερά και πέτα
You could be my only one
Na-na-na-na-ni, αμάν

Ah-aah, ah-aah-aah
Έλα, έλα, έλα
Ah-aah, ah-aah-aah
Έλα, έλα, έλα

Αμάν, αμάν
Take my pain away
Έλα έλα, έλα έλα

Στην αγκαλιά μου, ζήσε άλλη μια μέρα
Στην αγκαλιά μου, πάμε μαζί πιο πέρα
Στα όνειρά μου, βαλέ φτερά και πέτα
You could be my only one
Na-na-na-na-ni, αμάν

Έλα, έλα, έλα
Έλα, έλα, έλα
