Themis Andreadis "Tou erota kai tou chamou"
Themis Andreadis "Tou erota.. kai tou chamou" (Of Love... and Chaos) 14 + 1 songs New music compilation/digital release from Protasis Music Produced by Themis Andreadis/Protasis Music With 55 years of enduring presence in Greek music and a hiatus from discography for some years, Themis Andreadis makes a powerful comeback. With this second collection of 14 + 1 eclectic songs, he showcases another multifaceted and dynamic aspect of himself as a composer, lyricist, and a sensitive performer, in addition to his well-known role as a creator and interpreter of satirical songs. Today, timeless and indestructible by the years that have passed, he proves that he remains a distinct artistic personality with much more to offer to the Greek music scene. The music collection "Themis Andreadis - Of Love... and Chaos" includes ballads, timeless folk influences, songs with sensitive humor, and elements of rock. Outstanding performances by participating contemporary artists add depth and dimension to an already excellent musical material that stands out for its diversity in sounds, melodies, and rhythms. Collaborating artists include Themis Andreadis, Dimitris Andreadis, Doros Demosthenous, Violeta Ikari, Nefeli Fasouli, and Martha Frinzila. A special collaboration and interpretative dialogue with Themis Andreadis is the actor Spyros Papadopoulos. Themis Andreadis - Of Love... and Chaos, 14 + 1 songs 14 compositions by Themis Andreadis with lyrics by Mary Fasoulaki and his own, born through a dialogue and the sharing of personal experiences between the two creators. Some of these songs, already well-received by the audience, embark on their journey today on all digital platforms and YouTube. BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION Themis Andreadis is one of the distinctive artistic figures of the post-dictatorship era in Greek music. Flourishing during a period when Greek music, freed from restrictions imposed during the dictatorship, thrived and left behind a significant cultural legacy, Themis Andreadis made an indelible mark that endures to this day. Starting as a guitarist and singer in prominent ensembles of the time, Andreadis was discovered by Giannis Markopoulos. Markopoulos provided him with the opportunity to begin his career with huge timeless hits of the era, such as "Tou andra tou polla vary" and "Tha pao sti zoungla me ton Tarzan." Recognizing Andreadis's diverse interpretive skills, the composer entrusted him with ballads like "Ochi den prepei na synantithoume" and "Pou pate loipon." With a rich, creative discography and a stage presence over 55 years, Themis Andreadis remains a complete artist with a unique stage presence. He has collaborated as an interpreter with eminent composers such as Giannis Markopoulos, Mimis Plessas, George Hadjinasios, Vasilis Dimitriou, Christodoulos Halaris, and significant poets and lyricists like Erricos Thalassinos, Giorgos Chronas, Giorgos Skourtis, and Kostas Virvos. In 1973, he met lyricist and cartoonist Giannis Logothetis, also known as LoGo. In collaboration with composer-musician Giannis Kiourktsoglou, they pioneered a new genre of songwriting. This genre, in conjunction with Themis Andreadis's interpretive and stage presence, achieved immense success and was recognized and recorded as Satirical Song. After many years of collaboration with major production companies, Themis Andreadis decided to follow the path of independent production and recording. As a composer and now also as a singer, he collaborated with Manos Eleftheriou, Lazaros Biki, Mino Amaroti (pseudonym of poet Manolis Anagnostakis), and poet Giannis Efthimiadis. This second collection, "Themis Andreadis - Of Love... and Chaos," following the recent release titled "7 tragoudia tha sou po" ("I will tell you 7 songs"), is released by Protasis Music. Protasis Music continues with the same ideology of quality representation, hosting a great artist who still has much to create and communicate in our musical environment. The album is available digitally on all platforms and YouTube. Spotify: https://spoti.fi/47Hky7d Deezer: https://bit.ly/3Ra9KaE Youtube: https://rb.gy/7fnbsy
"ITHAKI" by Miltos Pavlou. Music Adaptation of the Poetry of Constantine P. Cavafy.
ITHAKI / ITHACA: A New Musical Journey Back to Basics Back to basics with a fresh perspective, the poetry of Constantine P. Cavafy takes center stage in a musical interpretation and performance by Miltos Pavlou. This latest release from Protasis Music is a remarkable discographic production with a strong archival interest, undeniable musical quality, and artistry. With special honor, we welcome and digitally release a limited number of collector's CDs from Protasis Music. This exceptional production signifies a modern approach to the precious Cavafian poetic chapter, showing respect for his work and unique compositional and interpretative interest from a musical creator and more, Miltos Pavlou, a social scientist of Cavafy's poetry. As Miltos himself characterizes it, "The collection aims to contribute to a return to basic principles and values in a critical and challenging period in Greece and the world. It gathers musical expressions of Cavafy's poetry created over the last almost forty years as an internal response to challenges of personal and social life. It comes at a moment of multifaceted crisis in our social coexistence. By focusing on the significant, it may help us look forward. Serving as a musical work, it addresses the need for introspection, reflection, and recreation. It hopes to contribute, in its modest measure and scope, to individual and collective uplift and overcoming, as poetry and musical expression often allow or prompt us." Regarding the English-language "Ithaca," translated by Miltos Pavlou and included as a bonus track in the self-titled collection, the composer living and working in Vienna says, "The collection also targets a non-Greek-speaking audience. Apart from the rendition of 'Ithaca' in English as a bonus track, it includes, as text in the CD Album edition, a careful rendering of the vocal performance of Greek lyrics in English (phonetic transliteration). This enables a non-Greek-speaking audience, who loves the poet, to more easily follow the Greek interpretation of each poem's musical setting." The release of an entirely English-language collection, with modern translations of the same poems into English by Miltos Pavlou, builds upon and respects existing significant translations, constructing a new set of contemporary English translations with musical and rhythmic fluidity. "Ithaca" in English, translated by Milto Pavlou, as a bonus track in the Greek debut collection, is a sample of this second collection.
