Mikis Theodorakis - Resistance - Historic Recordings From The Underground And Exile

Mikis Theodorakis is a renowned Greek troubadour and one of his country's greatest composers. He wrote many symphonies, cantatas, several ballets and operas, plus popular songs including "Zorba the Greek," famous from Herb Alpert's instrumental hit.
Liner notes from the backcover:

"The sound documents published here were recorded during the dictatorship of the colonels in Greece, following the military coup of April 21, 1967.

They are at once music and lived resistance. They are a scream, desperation, hope. Recorded on a simple tape recorder under circumstances of illegality, house arrest, banishment.

A testimony to circumstances in which life, death and dignity were at stake."

Many thanks for this, Herr Zero.

By the way, in the United States now carries many of Tom Liwa's recordings. I have recently purchased seven more to compensate for the fact that, in all likelihood, he won't be able to tour the United States.

Thank you so much for introducing him by posting his music to those of us who were unfamiliar with him. Whether he performs alone or with others such as No Existe or Flowerpornoes, I enjoy his talent and music immensely.

Wow, i congratulate you to your Tom Liwa collection, that mus be great! Sadly Tom Liwa does only a few live gigs in Germany, he had some serious health problems in 2015. Hope there will be more opportunities to see him playing on stage in the next months. Greetings!
