Mikis Theodorakis - Grammata Apo Ti Germania / Letters From Germany

These political songs in an original, satirical style were written by Mikis Theodorakis with lyrics of Fontas Ladis in 1966 and banned by censorship for ten years.

After the WWII and a destructive and painful civil war, a great number of Greeks emigrated to Germany as heavy industry and mine workers. These songs are dedicated to the problems and the pain of all the emigrants worldwide, through the letters they send to their beloved. Beautiful music by Theodorakis, arranged and directed by the great composer and orchestrator Thanos Mikroutsikos. The songs are interpreted by the expressive voices of Afroditi Manou, Antonis Kalogiannis and Yiannis Siris.

Tracklist:
01. Afroditi Manou - I sent you (Sou 'steila)

Thank you so much for the great work on this site! (Could something have gone wrong with the digitization of this album? The songs sound weirdly wrong...)
