CHRISTOS RAFALIDES & EVI SIAMANTA
Echo / The Music of Mimis Plessas
Christos' collaboration with Mimis Plessas, the internationally renowned multi award-winning Greek composer, has resulted in an urban sound - mosaic of global rhythms - echoing Rafalides' musical roots. The album features the soulful vocals of Greek performer Evi Siamanda.
Known as the "Greek Gershwin," Mimis Plessas' music has been celebrated throughout his illustrious career in film, theatre, opera, concerto suites, radio, and television. The CD "ἠχώ /echo" reintroduces Plessas' arrangements originally interpreted in the ‘60's by eminent female performers Tzeni Vanou and Marinella.
