Tzitzikia - jan 14 - Label: Accords Crosis / Distribution: Harmonia Mundi



Katerina Fotinaki belongs to the new generation of  greek diaspora artists. 

She left Greece in 2006 , to play with her elder and great greek voice Angelique Ionatos on her performance Sappho of
Mytilene. The duet then played together again in the performances Like a garden at night, Anatoli, and And the dreams will take their revenge. Katerina now presents her debut album "Tzitzikia" ("the cicadas") that gathers thirteen songs
based on modern greek poetry (Elytis, Theodorakis...). "Tzitzikia" combines the Antique conception of art (Art as the supreme meaning of life), the greek popular poetic tradition (interiority, restraint) and contemporary composition and arrangements. While texts are about dream or the actual political situation in Greece, music is a dialog between anatolian themes and western contemporary music, with shades of tango. Each piece is a unique and non-linear reverie that reveal her talent both as singer, guitarist and composer.

On stage, Tzitzikia is : 

-Katerina Fotinaki - vocals, guitars

-Stamos Semsis - viola

-Louise Jallu - bandonion

-Youssef Zayed - oud & percussions
