Kyriaki Yiortzi Antonopoulos was the first internationally successful Greek female vocalist who made North America her permanent home. Known simply as Madame Koula or Coula, this woman proved to be so popular that between 1916 to 1917 and 1927, she recorded at least 199 individual songs. No other female vocalist of Greek heritage in North America made or sold as many records during this same period.She sang in every genre, but was especially known for her songs in the café aman style, and she was the first Greek American vocalist to record in Turkish.She and her husband founded the Panhellenion Record Company in New York.
