Σταθερά, και για διάφορους λόγους, προτιμώ να ανεβάζω mp3 από τα cd μου, αντί της παραπομπής στο YouTube [Μεγάλο ποσοστό των κομματιών δεν υπάρχουν – άσε τη συνήθεια κάποιων βίντεο να εξαφανίζονται].
Εκτός από τις σπάνιες περιπτώσεις που πέφτω σε ζωντανές εκτελέσεις κλασικών, ανεκτίμητες όπως αυτή, των πέντε από τους Ελληνικούς Χορούς του Νίκου Σκαλκώτα.

Most of the times, for a variety of reasons, I prefer mp3’s from my cd collection instead of linking to YouTube [A large percentage of the tracks I want to post do not exist there, to begin with – let alone some videos’ vanishing habit].
Except for the rare occasions I fall into live classical performances, priceless as this one, of five of Nikos SkalkottasGreek Dances.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
