tribute to Vasilis Tsitsanis
piano: NIKOS ORDOULIDIS
sound recording: Georgios Bakalis | Eastside Recording Studio
Friday 22 May - The Municipal Theatre of Naoussa
Giota Negka joins forces with ‘The Eastern Piano Project’ and presents a special tribute to the work of Vasilis Tsitsanis. The captivating renditions of the popular by Giota Negka, in conjunction with the pianistic variations of Nikos Ordoulidis, divulge hidden aspects of the work of one of the most important creators of the Greek popular song of the 20th century. Key-songs of our popular music, performed ideally by Giota Negka, in adaptations which reveal new musical parameters.
2015 has been characterized as ‘Vasilis Tsitsanis Year’, as 100 years have passed since his birth; and even though so many years have passed, Vasilis Tsitsanis lives eternally through his songs and continues to fascinate and move, remaining timeless and timely as only the great masters of art do.
Giota Negka, an enchanting voice with a wonderful inflection and simultaneously a replete performer, one of the best in recent years, renders with respect, skill and artistry the much loved songs of Vasilis Tsitsanis. And the pianist Nikos Ordoulidis restores the ‘popular piano’ to its fitting place, since the piano as a musical instrument has not only been present on the great popular music stages but also in the discography of urban popular music for many years.
