George Dalaras (Greek: Γιώργος Νταλάρας), also sometimes transliterated as Yorgos or Giorgos Ntalaras, is a Greek singer. He was born in Nea Kokinia, Piraeus on 29th September 1949. His father was Loukas Daralas (Λουκάς Νταράλας), a famous singer of rembetika. Much of Dalaras’ work is dedicated to the history of the Cypriot political situation. He was initially inspired by the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974. However, he has been noted for continuing political themes into the late 1980s and early 1990s, when he produced many concerts for the cause of the Cypriot people.
