George Dalaras - A Portrait (1997) Retail CD
Modern Greek songs combine the ancient melodies and rhythms of the past with the voice of today, which creates new musical landscapes expressing universal truths. George Dalaras one of Greece's most popular and well known singers promotes the music of Greece with passion and energy like no other singer past or present ... Unlike many European countries, Greece does not adopt the prevailing pop culture of the world ... Greek music endures *because* it is based on the struggles/achievements of her past - it is an unbroken chain of music from ancient times. The universal message and appeal of themore… music bridges all cultures but the melodies, rhythms, and often the instruments are based on unbroken traditions. Dalaras voice is the main instrument, sincere,passionate, heartfelt, emotional... besides the bouzouki there is the violin, occasional guitar and clarinet, accompanied by orchestration to round out the music. The poetic titles of the songs reveal their contents: Konstandis, the only son; I was chosen; You were a god; Don't read my life; Take gypsy, your hammered billows; Death; The Sky Darkens; You finished me; The tough one; Your many faces; As long as the shutting door echoes; Songs are an illness ... Anyone familiar with George Dalaras will be drawn to the music by the mysterious titles alone, knowing that through his singing the mystery will gradually be revealed . Anyone unfamiliar, should listen and let this Greek musician of the soul enter and enchant you. Erika Borsos (bakonyvilla)
