  3. Two special concerts!! Special because we had, besides Aspasia Stratigou, just 5 musicians: Giorgos Matsikas, bouzouki, guitar Christos Zervas, guitar, Thanasis Sofras, contrabass Manos Grisbolakis accordion Stratos Samiotis drums special because of the selection of songs and special because of the „arrangement“ on stage. Stratos Samiotis and Thanasis Sofras a bit behind, the rest all in one line. And the second night Giorgos Dalaras was on stage all the time. No extra appearance for „the star“... He was very talkative, telling something to almost every song. The second night, when he was already on stage for the instrumental openings, great to see how he enjoyed the playing with the musicians! Some remarks to the songs first night we heard (instead of "Ιπτάμενο χαλί" which he did in Lemesos) the song "Της πίκρας το γυθαλί". At the end of the first night he did the two cypriot songs „Γυρισμός“ and “Πενταδάκτυλε” and the encore “Μη μου θυμώνεις μάτια μου“. „Fragile“ he did in Spanish, just the last refrain in English. Second night we did not have "Σαλταδόρος" and the concert ended with a gorgeous!!!!! "Μάνα μου Ελλάς". All in all very very good
  4. Vicky Leandros Giorgos Dalaras May 2019 Stuttgart-München-Rotterdam my first concerts this year and what an awesome start !!! All the halls were well staffed and there was a great atmosphere everywhere with a warm welcome to both. Vicky acting like a moderator and impressed us with changing languages from German to Greek and to English. I‘m not that fan of her, but her stage presence and the interacting with the audience (especially with the Karaoke) was awesome!! Her best song (to my opinion) was „ Herr Andonis“ („ο κυρ Αντώνης” στίχοι/μουσική: Νίκος Γκάτσος/Μάνος Χατζιδάκις) which she sang in German and Greek. They did 7 duets: - στο περιγιάλι το κρυφό - ζω για να σ’αγαπώ πολύ - κουρασμένο παλληκάρι - Αθήνα - καημός - θάλασσα πλατιά - μίλησέ μου they did very well, with love, joy, respect and inner connection. Giorgos‘ solo started with „Λεβερκούζεν” then „πεπρωμένο“, „αν υπάρχει λόγος”, “τα βεγγαλικά σου μάτια” and the gorgeous „η καρδιά μου θέλει να πετάξει”. The second part: „ήταν πέντε ήταν έξι”, “όλα καλά”, “οι ελεύθεροι κι ωραίοι” the rest changed a bit from night to night…so we heard f.e.:“Χένος”, “το‘πες”, “ι κυβερνήσεις πέφτουνε”, “ο τραγουδιστής”, “μι μου θυμώνεις μάτια μου” and a special „τώρα που θα φύγεις”... How good he did (although he came with bronchitis) is difficult to describe, it‘s more easy to watch one of the numerous videos on facebook or youtube…and there you also get the impression of the gorgous musical staging, every musician an artist!!!!
