NEW DIGITAL SINGLE RELEASE PASSENGERS IN PANIC "KAIXIS" Protasis Music releases an attention-worthy cover of the classic and timeless "Kaixis" by Apostolos Chatzichristou and Giorgos Fotidas, performed by the band Passengers in Panic. The rendition maintains traditional elements and forms while presenting a rock interpretation. The reimagined "Kaixis" is released as a single and will be included in the band's upcoming album, the second in their artistic journey, set to be released soon. Noteworthy guest vocal performances on this track include the exceptional Greek actor Giannis Tsortekis. An unexpected participation comes from Apostolos Chatzichristou's granddaughter, Lianna Bardi, a reputable musician, on vocals. Credits and details of the music production and video clip for "Kaixis": Cover by Passengers in Panic Vocals: Ioanna Galani, Giannis Tsortekis Backing vocals: Lela Argyri, Lianna Gari Vallia Bardi Guitars: Lela Argyri Bass: Lefteris Christou Drums: Phoivos Andriopoulos Composer: Apostolos Chatzichristou Lyricists: Apostolos Chatzichristou / Giorgos Fotidas Video clip director: Giannis Diassakis Actor: Elisavet Kavalaki ABOUT PASSENGERS IN PANIC Passengers In Panic self-describe as a Heavy Metal Greek Traditional Folk Metal band based in Athens, founded in December 2019. The dynamic of the band, following some changes, has now been shaped, with Yohanna (Ioanna Galani) on vocals, Lefteris Christou on bass (ex-Inactive Messiah, ex-Womb Of Maggots), Lela Argyri on guitar (Rocket Queens), and Phoivos Andriopoulos on drums. Their debut album, titled "Leap Of Faith," was released in 2020. Their various influences compose a sound with progressive and primarily Greek elements, as well as broader traditional influences. Instruments such as the Macedonian gaida, kaval, laouto, violin, and of course, the daouli, create a traditional atmosphere, uniting all the pieces together. From the first listen, it is apparent that the inspiration stems from human experiences and various situations faced daily, including toxic relationships, human violence, the struggle for survival, injustices, as well as social issues, discovered through the music and lyrics of Passengers In Panic. In 2022, the band performed not only in Athens but also in cities across Greece and abroad, at various major Metal festivals like the Gothoom Open Air Festival in Slovakia, where they shared the stage with many well-known bands from the global metal scene, including Kataklysm, Suffocation, Draconian, Memoriam, Moribund Oblivion, Aeonian Sorrow, and many more. In March 2024, they played in Bucharest for the Psychosounds Metal Ladies Night. Released by Protasis Music, available on all digital platforms: Spotify: iTunes/Apple Music: Deezer: Youtube:
Panos Katsimihas "To spiti me tis akakies"
Another outstanding collaboration of Panos Katsimihas with Protasis Music is manifested through the release of his new digital album titled "The House with the Acacias," reaffirming our company's timeless coexistence with the distinguished artist. Panos himself provides his description regarding the content of this collection, as well as the motive behind its creation and release, in a recent interview with Metronomos magazine, as excerpted below: "The House with the Acacias" is what embraced my childhood, adolescence, and the painful early adulthood with love. Then began a journey that took us far away and for a long time. However, in this house, everything happened. The first readings, the first melodies, the first decisions, the determination for a path I had chosen as a child, even though I didn't admit it, not even to myself. What followed afterward was just a matter of time. Everything had to happen... and it did." **This pertains to the album "The House with the Acacias." The renowned meticulous and qualitatively excellent production of Panos Katsimihas, with its characteristic and beloved sound and performance, adds yet another significant release to the existing repertoire of Protasis Music, in continuation of the timeless collaboration with producers Haris and Panos Katsimihas. "House with the Acacias" is musically described and interpreted through 9 well-known songs, exemplifying both creative and interpretive writing by Panos Katsimihas, in collaboration with exceptional musicians, ensuring the aesthetic result of the production. Detailed information about the musicians and the lyrics of the songs is provided in the attached file. Spotify: iTunes/ Apple music: Deezer: Youtube playlist:

I became a fellow traveler at an unsuspecting blessed moment, which I had been waiting for a long time. Just as it ideally happens on unforgettable journeys... Indeed, lifelong listeners, those who respect the gift and carry the flame, know that the song never leaves you first and is doubly generous in patience and persistence. It saves lives and accommodates us all, and for this, Panos and I owe our own lives. Enjoy.

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: Deezer: Youtube:
"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.
