17 days into a new year and this is my first post for January!
“I Shall Speak of…” is a song from my first solo album “Never & Nothing” [Pote & Tipota]
with poems by Elias Petropoulos
Never & Nothing was first released by Virgin/EMI, in 2000
…and later rearranged and produced with Oannes, re-released in 2004, where this version is from.
It was our first collaboration before forming … MK-O!
…with my very sincere apologies to Elias [who is no longer living thus unable to scold me] here is a translation of his poem.
I shall speak of… / Θα Μιλήσω……
I shall speak of pleasant things
of the winter dew
and the grazing cows,
of the radiant full moon of January
and the babbling of the brooks.
all these came so late and backwards
so early and reversed
that I rightfully tremble.
• Composed, arranged & performed by Marina Kanavaki
• Poems: Elias Petropoulos
• Rearranged and produced by Marina Kanavaki and Oannes
