ORIGIN OF AGAPIMÚ

Agapimú comes from two modern Greek words, namely the noun agap i which means love and the genitive mou which expresses ownership to the first person, that is, “mine”.

The Greek expression, Agapi Mouwas popularized mainly for two musical themes. The first of them in a Greek song that the Italian singer Mía Martini recorded in 1974 and that gained great popularity in various parts of the old continent, especially Italy.

Agapimú, was used 5 years later by the Spanish singer Ana Belén. This artist recorded a version adapted by José Luis Gómez Escobar of the Greek song. The audience for this song was very high and that led to the term becoming popular and reaching different parts of the world.
