Manolis Angelopoulos was a Greek Roma (Gypsy) singer of Laiko music.

Angelopoulos was born in Agios Athanasios, Drama prefecture on April 8, 1939. Having been discovered quite by accident (singing while he was working), he first recorded a song in 1957. He gained popularity during the 1960s singing about Asia Minor refugees, unrequited love, exotic places and his own love affair with Annoula Vasiliou, who became his wife.

Angelopoulos toured the USA during the 1970s with great success. He died on April 2, 1989 in London.
