France’s Eurovision 2023 representative, La Zarra, recently dropped a new duet version of her song “Évidemment”, featuring Greek singer Katerina Stikoudi.
Collaboration at a distance
Released by Universal Music France, the collaboration features both singers performing in their native language, with La Zarra singing in the original French and Katerina Stikoudi providing vocals in Greek. The additional Greek lyrics were created by Greek lyricist Antonis Pappa.
The collaboration between the performers began in late April, while La Zarra was in the midst of a promotional tour for her participation at Eurovision. The duet was created at a distance with Greek record company Minos EMI stating that all that was required to complete it was “some online meetings, creativity and good spirits”.
