Live Album of Greek Music
Our association “Le Blues du Pyrée”, has been promoting Greek culture and especially it’s music through the organization of concerts, musical lectures, and conferences since 2008 in Millau, Aveyron FRANCE.
We have organized a unique concert “Journey into the heart of Greek Music” on November the 14 2015 in Millau, Aveyron featuring the musician Nicolas Syros and his band coming form Greece.
Nicolas Syros is a singer and a bouzouki virtuoso, an essential reference of the Rebetiko genre, the famous Greek Blues echoing with an incredible acuteness the crisis that Greece is going trough.
This concert has been succeseful thanks to the participation of many singers and musicians who travelled from Greece at the theatre of la Maison du peuple of Millau.
This Album will collect Rebetiko songs of course, but also songs from the modern repertoire .
As a preview, these are some musical extracts :
