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. I love to hear her sing, Marina. When I was a child I heard Mahalia Jackson sing in church. I didn’t know her greatness at the time, but I certainly never forgot it. 🙂

  2. As I told your hubs, I forgive him for sharing this one (I have her album of Christmas songs and it is my MUST-LISTEN every year) instead of Silent Night – which, as far as I am concerned cannot be sung by anyone as well as her… 😉
