Biography

Georges Moustaki (born Yussef Mustacchi; May 3, 1934 - May 23, 2013, Nice, France) was a singer-songwriter of Greek Jewish origin. Moustaki was born in Alexandria, Egypt, of Sephardic Jewish parents who had moved there from Corfu, and who ran a bookshop in the city. The family spoke Italian at home, but Georges (then Yussef) spoke Arabic with his friends and attended a French school to which his Francophile parents sent him and his sisters. In 1951 he moved to Paris, where he was inspired by the young Georges Brassens, in honour of whom he changed his name to Georges Moustaki.
