Ζωή Κουρούκλη (Zoe Kouroukli) (1937 - 2018 ) was a Greek '60's, pop, garage-rock and yé-yé singer. Kouroukli sang with the bands Zoe And The Stormies and Zoe and the Minis before going on to perform as a solo artist. "Zoe" aka Zoitsa Kouroukli was one of the Greek singers that roamed the Greek garage scene in the sixties. In 1959 Zoe Kouroukli started out as the candidate for Greece in the election of the “Miss Universe" contest. Although she did make it into the semi-finals, the big prize that year went to her Japanese opponent. During her musical career that followed, Zoe regularly performed in local venues, and apart from releasing several songs on her own, she also played together with various Greek bands of the time, like The Minis and The Stormies.

In 1966 The Minis was a short lived group that released a couple of singles before disappearing, their first single being "Darlin' " / “Yepee Ya Ya song” which includes Zoe's vocals. The Minis also recorded several songs with Vangelis. Their second single contains covers from the Beatles-songs “And I love her” and “Girl”. In 1966 and 1967 Zoitsa Kouroukli released two singles with Vangelis' help. The first one, "Oldies but goodies" seems to have been produced on behalf of "Rally Antika 1966", a public event in Athens where a number of antique cars are driven around by people dressed in early 20th century fashion.

The event was also broadcast at the time, during which Zoe's song could be heard. The second are Zoe's covers of songs played at the 17th Festival of San Remo. She was a cousin of famous Greek actress Ζωή Λάσκαρη ( Zoe Laskari) (whose real name happens to be Ζωή Κουρούκλη (Zoe Kouroukli) as well!). She died in May 2018. Read more on Last.fm.
