Groovy pikrodafni

Truth is I'm not into traditional Greek music. I may like some pieces here and there, especially some polyphonic ones from Epirus, but I don't really have a special interest in this kind of music. "Pikrodafni", though, is one of those tunes, which I must say I loved when listening to it from a jazzy point of view by a kickass Greek group, Mode Plagal.


Up till yesterday, that was my favorite version. Until I got my hands (ears) on this groovy piece of music by another freaking talented Greek ensemble, On The Road.


Whatever shit we're into in this country, these are stuff to be proud of.

Safe place

Yesterday I returned to the place I used to have drinks and fun in my college years, probably the darkest (literally) and at the same time the purest reggae joint in Athens, Red Sea. After 17 years, the gang was different, the feeling was kinda weird, but the music was top-notch. Still authentic and awesome.


Reggae is my safe, happy place. It will always be.
