Η λέξη “King” στον τίτλο αυτού, όπως και των περισσότερων κομματιών που έχουμε ακούσει στη διάρκεια του αφιερώματός μας, είναι χρησιμοποιημένη συμβολικά. Με την πρόσθετη λεπτομέρεια ότι, εδώ, είναι και το όνομα του ανθρώπου για τον οποίο έχει γραφτεί το έργο : ο Ιταλός avant garde συνθέτης αφιέρωσε αυτό το μικρό αριστούργημα στη μνήμη του Martin Luther King.

The word “King” in this title, as in most of the tracks’ we’ve heard throughout our tribute, is used symbolically. With the additional detail that here it’ s also the name of the man for whom the work is written : The Italian avant garde composer dedicated this little masterpiece to the memory of Martin Luther King.


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!
