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!

    • Being a Bachean myself and a “gimme Bach anytime anyplace” person, I’m inclined to agree with you! 😉 [but I would even if I wasn’t because this is truly wonderful!] It’s a win win!!!! 😉

    • I’m also not a great fan of organ (with exceptions of course and not as much as hubs is anyway, who adores this instrument) but yes, spectacular it is indeed! 😘

Happy to hear your thoughts
