“Once in this incurable world
There lived a child, forgotten and defenseless
He had a small drum that he’d beat
Dum dum – dum dum
A concert inspired by George Hatzinasios song, ‘The child with
the drum’ by the Greek poet Nikos Gatsos, will delve you into an atmosphere of hope, celebration, love and happiness with the vibration of the Drum of our souls. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy Greek jazz, Greek – romeiko and epic – classical style and how it ts within the European musical scene without alienating the audience. Hadjinasios’s work – comprising of his arias from
El Greco, his compositions inspired by Byzantine culture, blended with his soundtracks for
the award-winning 1989 British romantic comedy-drama lm Shirley Valentine, and his ‘laika’ (pop) songs – all together with dramatic narration create a synesthesia of rhythms, stories and feelings that can only result in an unforgettable experience!
George Hatzinasios is an icon and pioneer of Greek music history; he is one of the renown Greek composers and jazz pianists, with a national and international reputation. He was the one who introduced European jazz to the Greek musical scene. He composed music for television, cinema, theatre, opera and poetry of Greek poets. As a pianist, he is reputable for his musical experimentations and self-improvisation. One of his most famous albums is “The Eleventh Commadment” with Nana Mouskouri.
