#BIRTHDAY: Mariza Koch from Greece is 76 today

When you look at how some countries are performing these days, it’s often good to see how they got to where they are. It can be surprising.

When you think of Greece, you might think of the 21st Century when they started getting good results. But back in the 1970s it wasn’t always the way. Today’s birthday girl Μαρίζα Κωχ/Mariza Koch. She brought a very ethnic sound to the contest in The Hague and it didn’t go that well. The thing is that if she had entered the same song 40 years later, she probably would have breezed through a semi-final and finished on the left-hand side of the scoreboard. As it was, Mariza and her instrumentalist came 13th of 18. But she did have the third-favourite song in the French jury.
