Μαρίνα Σάττι

Marina Satti (36) is a Greek singer, songwriter, and music producer. She combines Greek traditional sounds with her pop and urban influences.

She was born in Athens, Greece, and was raised in Heraklion on Crete. At a young age she began classical piano lessons as well as vocal training. She enrolled in the architecture program at the National Technical University of Athens, but she never finished.

In 2008, Marina Satti graduated with honors and took first place in lyrical monody, having studied under baritone Panos Dimas. She studied jazz at the Nakas Conservatory and obtained a second degree in advanced classical studies one year later.

After getting a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in the USA, Marina founded fonés, a women’s polyphonic group, as well as chóres, a choir of 200 women with whom she promotes Greek traditional songs on the international scene. By placing choirs at the center of her work and celebrating poetic mixtures, Marina Satti created an authentic artistic approach.

In 2022, Marina released her first full-length personal album, "Yenna."

Alongside having a career in music, Marina has also worked as an actress at the National Theatre of Greece, the Greek National Opera, and at the Athens Festival.
