Spanomarkou Areti and Ioanna

They said about Spanomarkou sisters….


Ioanna & Areti Spanomarkou (Greece)take top honors for their new protest album, Greece A Political Prisoner. These two musical sisters strive to keep alive the passionate flame of the Greek soul with their compositions and lyrics during a time of national difficulty. They write their own material which is performed by several brilliant and well-known vocalists. Their music is in the traditional Greek popular genre, but the lyrical content has a more contemporary style in line with today’s underground urban culture. One can think of their Greek folk music, Rebetiko, as Greek Blues. This is an oversimplification, of course, but it’s an interesting analogy; the suggestion being that their Rebetiko fills a niche in Greek culture that is the equivalent of the Blues in American culture. This new political/social, two CD album includes thirteen songs and nine narrative accounts about the current Greek economic crisis: unemployment, corruption, injustice, poverty, suicide and lack of freedom.
