Lefteris Mytilineos in a few words
Lefteris Mytilineos started his career with a talent show of the time. In "Talents" by George Economides and Rena Dor, where he won the first prize accompanied by a suit and a stove from Radio Athens, as a prize.
THE Lefteris Mytilineos He was born in Athens on 24 April 1946 and was released approximately 20 complete studio albums, on labels like Columbia Records, η CBS Records International, EMI and others.

Repanis, Frizzy, Pythagoras, Γκάτσος, Moutsis, Akis Panou, Chian, Mitsakis, Katiniaris, Soukas are some of his collaborations Lefteri of Mytilene.
In an interview with Lifo o Lefteris Mytilineos he had said among other things: "I studied at the Piraeus Association, classical song and vocals. An uncle of mine took me there, my mother's brother. I learned about breathing, how to post your voice, ways not to get tired, when to take out the crown, where to cut. Do not rush things, the melody runs like water, like falling honey. Caress your ears. Sure, in the space where we work, as you know, is being falsified. The drums often break. I leave the store and I'm sick.
I sang Giannis Vogiatzis and Polymeris as a child. I loved Maroudas and Gounaris. I had a great weakness in Wembo. I was with Katie Belinda when she died – my good friend.
My weakness; Eliza Marelli. Great singer, wonderful woman. I never thought I would become a professional singer. My uncle is to blame! I competed in the talents of George Economides and won the first prize with the votes of the world. I also won the award – the suit and the stove.
Economides, although he was an opponent of folk song, he loved me. I had arrived some summers to sing for two consecutive weeks in the Grove. It helped me a lot. Like all my associates. I have no complaints that someone fought me and all this allegedly. The "bad" thing is that I started with lightning speed, I entered the discography unbroken boy 21 years and I got tabs. I had not even realized what was happening to me and I was suddenly on Sunset with Moscholou and Kokotas and the blessings of Bithikotsis. Afterwards I understood exactly what had happened. And who, most, I am.
If I am a light folk singer; I'm probably a bastard! I'm from here too, I'm from there too, I balance between the folk song and the so-called light. Rebetis, Nevertheless, I never was. Neither, sure, heavy folk. And I did not want to be. I like the bouzouki to bring out harmonious notes, no sound harsh and harsh, not to kill your ear. I am from the school of Chios. I was going to his house, in Kypseli, and we rehearsed for six months to sing two of his songs. Erotic singer; Definitely yes. Romantic; I would not say that. I'm not so optimistic about being romantic. I have always been with the betrayed and the sad ".
