There could be no Greek of Instanbul (Constantinople) for up to 100 years ago that would not remember with sweet nostalgia the feasts of Tatavla. Singing companies of people on horse drawn wagons would climb up to the neighborhood of feasts to listen, in the various taverns, to the renowned orchestras performing amanes, Istanbul songs and dances: the so-called ‘divine chants’ of the Byzantines, a living and long standing tradition of songs listened to with the accompaniment of wine.

Chaostar is an outfit, hailing from Greece. The band is the brainchild of Septicflesh guitarist Christos Antoniou who founded Chaostar in 1998. The band was meant to be a side project since the main effort and time went into Septicflesh. Over time the project turned into a band that released so far four longplayer that were as genius and distracting…

The Mediterranean Sea, enclosed by two continents, encircled by a multitude of different countries, cultures and languages enjoys a rich and colourful diversity of musical expressions. With cross-migration and trade throughout history, though, we do find common or similar instruments, rhythms, and musical styles. In spite of all the differences, there is a ‘Mediterranean flair’ in all these musics.

Euripides wrote The Trojan Women in 415 B.C., but his tragic play about the aftermath of the fall of Troy continues to resonate many centuries after it was first performed. Eleni Karaindrou, best know for her film scores for Ulysses' Gaze and Eternity and a Day, composed this score for a 2001 production of The Trojan Women after being struck by the parallels between the ancient Greek story and the recent situation in the Balkans. Although she chose to use various folk instruments from around the Mediterranean, such as the lyre, an ancestor of the modern violin; the lauto, a Greek form of the lute; and the ney, an end-blown flute, her stark compositions are not folkloric recreations. Instead, she blends the ancient timbres of the instruments with a vocal chorus to create a sound that is not quite modern but not archaic either. Perhaps the best word to use in describing Karaindrou's austere, beautiful music is timeless.

Early Blues, World | Country: Greece/USA | Label: Death Is Not The End

Death Is Not The End present a two-part collection centred on two emigrant Greek artists recorded in New York during the 1920s and 1930s. 'Greek Blues in America' explores the recordings of George Katsaros and Kostas Dousas, who mainly recorded solo, accompanying themselves on guitar in a unique finger-picking style. This, along with the sub-cultural subject matter of the rebetiko, reflects somewhat of a cross-continental echo of the American blues - captured in the USA following a wave of immigration from Greece and Asia Minor, just as the new demand for regional and ethnographic music in the recording industry was beginning.

This studio recording was made in 1989 coinciding with a memorable production from the Metropolitan Opera, later captured on DVD. It's a delightful performance, and a wonderful highlight of Pavarotti's later career. Kathleen Battle's sparkling soprano is a brilliant accompaniment to Pavarotti's still-ringing tone.
"Pavarotti's voice was still beautiful and pliable, his phrasing exquisite. And he loved the role of Nemorino and always seemed happy with both its comedy and pathos–he steals every scene he's in, and no one minds…Kathleen Battle sings Adina with perfect, pearl-like tone, absolute fluency and commitment, and a trill to die for…Enzo Dara is an ideal Dulcamara, just the right combination of huckster and sentimentalist, with ease in every register and with fast music."

Greek pop diva Elena Paparizou rocketed to global fame in 2005 when her "My Number One" claimed top honors in the annual Eurovision Song Contest. Born January 31, 1982, in Västergötland, Sweden, to Greek immigrant parents, Paparizou – whose first name is often spelled "Helena" in international markets – was raised in Gothenburg, where as a child she studied singing as well as dancing and acting. At 17, she teamed with fellow Greek-Swede Nikos Panagiotidis to form the dance-pop duo Antique. Their debut single, a cover of Notis Sfakianakis' "Opa-Opa," emerged as a breakout hit, entering the Top Ten across Scandinavia and becoming the first act to climb into the Swedish Top Five with a record sung in Greek. The follow-up, "Dinata Dinata," was also a smash, and Antique subsequently scored with the singles "Follow Me" and "Moro Mou." In 2001, the duo also represented Greece at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "(I Would) Die for You," capturing third place behind Estonia and host nation Denmark.

Three and a half decades after Diamanda Galás’ first recordings as a solo vocalist, she still talks about her singing as an act of violence. Musing to Rolling Stone about her performance of the folk standard “O Death”—versions of which are included on both of her new records, *All the Way and At Saint Thomas the Apostle Harlem—*she describes it as a cycle of destruction. “You keep breaking it and breaking it and breaking it and desiccating it and putting it back together until it becomes a new life form,” she says. “And then you rip it apart again.” It’s an accurate description of that solo piano piece—which traffics in the California-born composer’s longheld affinities for bebop, blues, and stately morbidity—but it’s also a handy summation of the harrowing work Galás has made for her whole career.

A Greek band of the late '60s and early '70s, Aphrodite's Child scored only one European hit, "Rain and Tears." Though it was a big one, the group became little more than a trivia answer after keyboardist Vangelis Papathanassiou dropped his surname and hit number one with the theme to Chariots of Fire in 1981…
