Dalaras' Favourite...

22 posts in this topic

For Franz, even though this words are better left without translation...

"AFTO EINAI"...! = "this is it!" (usually to show that we sang/are singing well)

"DIKO SAS"...! = "it's yours!" (when asking/allowing us to sing)

"ARISTA"...! = "perfect!"

"EYGE"...! = something similar to "bravo!"

"APANOU"...! = something like "go up!" (used like a direction on how to sing a song/part of a song, telling that we should go for the higher notes)

"FYGAME"...! = "let's go!" (expression of enthousiasm, being carried away by the song)

"ELLA"...! = "come on" (asking us to give our best self on singing this part)

"POPOPO"...! nothing to explain here... used as an expression of amazement...

Franz, hope I've given you an idea of what these words mean... Of course the translation is a bit rough.. and not really careful as I'm in a hurry...

Ech, "figame" and I can't breathe any more; every time I hear "I thalassinoi" live from Zygos; I still remember I felt this lack of aeras kai sto Berolino.....

A nice topic. Thanks.

I don't think we have mentioned Dalaras' favourite word when he is in the loo.

Pikerni would probably be very interested in it !

Hehehe, Anna, you quoted these two words in German and I again start dreaming about these two fragments in German I would like to hear him in! Well, this was a relative simply greeting, do you have any others to share?

:) und einen guten Sonntagabend, Anna.

I can't remember, what did he say in Berlin now and, if you remember, a year ago? Any German phrases? Sorry fo this hopeess question, Anna, I realized you visited more concerts! Must not be from Berlin of course!

A question a bit out of topic: does M. Theodorakis know a bit German? I suppose so, after te edition of "BIs er wieder tanzt" (I dromoi tou arxangelou) just in German. Hm?

As far as I got it, Dalaras did the German greeting 'guten Abend' 2 times!

Once in Frankfurt in 1998 and last year in Stuttgart.

And I remember in Bruxelles in 1998 he said 'bon soir'!!

If Theodorakis is speaking German? I don't think so. He speaks French and English ( and of course Greek!). And the book, well he didn't write it!
