Musical Odyssey - September 9, 2007

The playlist is here

Today I talked about and played music from Savinna Yannatou. Information about her can be found here ( and also here (her official website).

Below are videos from Sarbel singing Mi Chica which we heard today.
You can also see Savinna Yannatou singing Cançó dels traginers with Miguel Gil on this youtube link here. This is worth checking out.

I have also created a Musical Odyssey page on where you can listen to samples of Greek music.
You can see it here or look at the playlist on the menu page to the right (you might have to scroll down a little).

Musical Odyssey - September 2, 2007

The playlist is here.

During the show I talked about the band Zoo, the movie soundtrack Rembetiko
(music composed by Stavros Xarhakos) and Tonis Maroudas. Below is a video with a scene from the Rembetiko movie.

We also heard some music from Sarbel. I was wondering if I was pronouncing his name correctly and it seems that there are two different ways to pronounce it according to : Sarbel (pronounced "Sharbel", or "Sarbel" in spoken Greek which lacks a voiceless postalveolar fricative, or the English "sh")
