Welcome to the homepage of the welknown singer, songwriter and producer Leo Leandros.

Leo Leandros (born 1926 in Astakos as Leandros Papathanasiou), is a Greek musician, composer and producer. In 1955 he left for Germany to pursue an international career in singing and composing.

He celebrated successes with songs as "Mustafa", "Komm Mister Talisman" and "Hymnos Pathatinaikos", but shifted his focus to his daughter, Vicky, who had been singing from a very early age, turned out to be the real treasure. He became her manager, composer and producer when she was 13, and is responsible for her unique training and career.

Under his pseudonym Mario Panas he was the composer of songs like "Alle Mädchen wollen Küssen" (Be Mine) and -with lyrics of Klaus Munro- "Après toi", the winning title of the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest, which Vicky Leandros performed for Luxembourg.

Leandros composed and produced for many artists such as Julio Iglesias, Nana Mouskouri, Demis Roussos, among others. His compositions are very lyrical with interesting arrangements, combining Greek sound with a European one. His albums have sold over 120 million worldwide.
