THE HOMELESS (TA ASTEGA)

 

With Giorgos Dalaras

Featuring: S. Kraounakis, E. Tsaligopoulou, A. Stratigou 

“The Homeless” is a musical proposal that boasts aesthetically between the American ragtime and the Greek rebetiko. The introductory instrumental track (1901) musically depicts the joyful, playful and careless vision of the future in the early 20th century, when the world was not vigilant about the fact that two world wars were about to break out. This is also the time when ragtime is at its peak, while rebetiko is still enshrined in Smyrna, until it actually comes into being by Markos Vamvakaris after Smyrna’s disaster …

Lyrics: Giannis Doukas, Dimitris Lentzos, Kostas Papageorgiou, Dimitris Roulias, Panagiotis Makris, Tina Giotopoulou.
