Από το τρίτο άλμπουμ των MK-O [Marina Kanavaki, Oannes] που κυκλοφόρησε το 2011.
Το Blues For The White N****r είναι ένα concept άλμπουμ. Θέμα, η εκμετάλλευση της μαύρης μουσικής με σκοπό την περιθωριοποίηση του λευκού ακροατηρίου, και ο ρόλος σ’ αυτό των [social] media…
Η απαγόρευση της “n word” στον τίτλο, επιβεβλημένη από διαδικτυακά καταστήματα πώλησης του δίσκου, όπως το itunes, ήταν για μας μια πρωτόγνωρη εμπειρία της politically correct λογοκρισίας…

From our third MK-O album, released in 2011.
Blues For The White N****r is a concept album. It deals with the exploitation of black music for the purpose of marginalizing the white audience, and the role that the [social] media play in that…
Τhe prohibition of the “n word” imposed by online disc sales outlets such as itunes was to us an unprecedented experience of politically correct censorship…

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. The “N” word…. I was surprised when I began to discover your music, and saw this as an album title. I thought you were brave, and challenging a status quo.
    Now, the music is fab!

    • Ah, the ‘N’ word… censoring language I think is a sign of decadence. Words carry meanings and history. I wonder whether some people wish to obliterate the cruel history of slavery, as if it never happened… I heard that even John Lennon’s song has been altered in some versions… the politically correct versions! Thank you, my sweet friend! ❤🥰😊😍❤

  2. Apologies for dominating your comments but if you could just be a little less interesting… Then maybe I’d take a break! Okay… So the N word is so controversial now that even scholars can get in deep trouble for trying to discuss it in class. Meanwhile, I turn on the radio and there it is. Hmmm. 🙄🤔

    • Ah, I am very very flattered!!!!!!!! …no need to apologize of course, on the contrary, now if you don’t I’ll start worrying! 😂🤣
      On the N …and other words, I fear we have entered dark medieval times, which btw weren’t as dark as history has painted them….
