Modern Greek Music
Brief reference and videos of Greek modern music
For more than 30 years I have worked as a Greek professional musician
and during this time I feel I can say I have acquired some knowledge as well
as personal opinions about the evolution of contemporary Greek music,
especially from the 1950s to nowadays.
In fact, if you ask
me what I recall about today's popular music in Greece, or what it
represents, I have to say that I have no idea. Names come and go like
shooting stars. Only a few performers like George Dalaras, Giannis Parios
and some more are keeping alive the original sounds of modern Greek music.
Of course Greece finally recieved a Eurovision award with Helena Paparizou 2
years ago but this is not to compare with the success of Zorba the Greek or
Never on Sunday witch made the Greek music internationally famous.
