Garo MafyanBorn: February 24th, 1951, Erenköy, Istanbul (Turkey)
Garo Mafyan can be considered a genuine Eurovision veteran, having conducted an impressive 24 entries in the Turkish preselection between 1981 and 1995. Three of these made it to the international final: ‘Hani?’, sung by Neço in 1982, ‘Didai didai dai (Aşık oldum)’, sung by M.F.Ö. in 1985, and ‘Şarkım sevgi üstüne’, sung by Seyyal Taner & Lokomotif in 1987. Mafyan also wrote the arrangements to the 1982 and 1987 efforts.
In due course, a more extensive biography of Garo Mafyan will be published on this website
