A minute with Rafaella Moschovia Professional singer, artist


Where do you live?
I live in Kalo Chorio in Larnaca with my husband and our dogs

What did you have for breakfast?
Well my everyday breakfast varies, it depends on my mood and the time I have ahead. Usually I like to have some crackers with anari cheese and some honey.

Describe your perfect day?
A perfect day for me would be to wake up in the morning, take the dog for a walk, have my coffee and then to spend some time to listen to music, read about music and furthermore to do some research on different music types.

Best book ever read?
A book I really enjoyed reading is called The Gift. I enjoyed it a lot because at the time that I read it, specifically during the lockdown period, my psychology wasn’t at its highest level and that book reminded me of many valuable characteristics and it made me realise a lot of things.

Best childhood memory?
My best childhood memory was when I was 12 years old and I had my first music concert for Action Aid with Tat-Nbar. I remember that at that moment, I felt like music is the one thing that can connect people on many different levels.

What is always in your fridge?
In my fridge you can always find eggs and cucumbers.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Greek pop music

What’s your spirit animal?
My spirit animal I would say is the turtle, because I tend to work seasonal and then there is a period of time where I need to take my time to rest. Although the turtle is considered as a slow animal when it is outside the water, when it is in the water she feels comfortable enough to swim freely and in that way I can really relate to it.

What are you most proud of?
I am very proud of my values and the way I was brought up to appreciate certain things.

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
The scene that stayed with me the most was in the series Kokkino Potami (The Red River), which talks about the genocide of Pontics. The specific scene that stayed with me was when they were forced out of their houses. I could feel their pain by looking into their eyes. I hate wars and the pain that it causes.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would love to go out with Eleni Tsaligopoulou, I really do admire her and I would love to meet her.

If you could time travel when/where would you go?
I would love to go back to the 60s and 70s where the Greek music was flourishing and had a higher quality and value than nowadays.

What is your greatest fear?

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
I would say be more careful who you put your her trust in.

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone
I would never date someone who wouldn’t know how to approach me.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would love to spend my last few hours with my family and the people I love.
