Popular Greek songs of the last decade (Part 1) Posted by Ourania on Dec 12, 2019 in Music, Videos
Γεια σας! There are only few days before this decade ends and the next posts will be related to the music produced the last ten years. Today, I will present you three popular Greek songs, which also happen to be some of my favorites.
1. Μαρίνα Σάττι – Μάντισσα (Marina Satti, The Fortune – teller)
ΜαρίναΣάττι is half Greek, half Sudanese, has studied at the Berklee College of Music and her songs are a fusion of urban and Greek folk music. The music video of the song Μάντισσα was filmed at the center of Athens. The song was a hit in the summer of 2017.
2. Trio Tekke – InDa
The band from Nicosia released their first album in 2009. Their first songs were remixes of old rebetika songs. The song InDa is from their second album, Samas, released in 2011. The songs of this album contain elements of reggae, psychedelic music and jazz.
3. Παύλος Παυλίδης & B-movies – Ένα αλλιώτικο παιδάκι (A different kid, in direct translation)
Caution: NSFW This video contains material which may be offensive to some viewers.
A song with a sad story. It was a hit last year and was composed after the murder of Ζακ Κωστόπουλος, a.k.a. Zak, a Greek LGBTQ activist. Pavlos Pavlides from Macedonia, is one of the most popular Greek musicians. He was the frontman of Ξύλινα Σπαθιά (Xilina Spathia), one of the most famous Greek rock bands.
I am always interested in knowing what non-Greeks think of Greek music: Do you know any Greek songs? Which Greek songs of the last ten years do you like? Feel free to leave a comment!
