New Songs of Old Athens
A lyrical collection new “traditional” Greek urban folk songs. The lyrics were written by Notis Contoplianos’ late wife, Eleni Karapiperi.
Notis wrote all the music, plays guitar, and sings with his beautiful cello-like voice. Kathy Sherman produced the album, plays bouzouki, baglamas and harmonica. The poetry is beautiful and all the music is very danceable.
