One of the judges of Master Chef, Leonidas Koutsopoulos, decided in the quarantine to make some radio-internet shows-tributes. One of them was a wonderful tribute to the Larissa songwriter Thanassis Papakonstantinou. The tribute lasts a little over 4,5 hours, with words by Uncle Leonidas and songs by Thanasis, from his entire career, 38 years now.
Enjoy.....

On an island of the ocean, on a deserted peak
And a few words from Thanasis, at the last minute, about what is happening around us ....

"It always catches your eye, so I use the love of some people for their songs to pass on their views, otherwise no one would care. On the other hand, you are not a sterile creator, a neutral being. You are also a citizen with problems and worries. So other times there is a sense of shyness and company, imposing silence, and other times, like here, the mood to participate in to become social In his own - even simplistic - way of thinking.

For me, things are clear.

From the same point of view, Jussica as the purest form of will for life pushes man to think about the human condition.. In most cases, anyone who thinks is looking for freedom. He looks for her and probably fights for her.

On the other hand, various forms of power - with very few exceptions - seek to restrict citizens' freedom in order to maintain and expand their privileges. Because of this fundamental difference, the powers that be are disgusting with Jussica - and the arts in general - and its creators.

This is not at all surprising for the analgesia of the current government, which has found the opportunity in the epidemic to do practical training in authoritarianism. This is what a dear friend and colleague often says (about himself): "Is it possible to become a Dodistra?".

I laugh when I hear voices from the space for you replacing the current Minister of Culture. Dear colleagues, the faces are not very important. This process will continue forever and unchanged.

The greatest act of resistance for you is to continue it creative, authentic and uncontrollable. Your answer will be your songs (and you are not referring to military art).

Of course, a prerequisite for doing this is to be alive. I support them in general terms claims of the collectives of your space due to extraordinary circumstances (beyond his all-encompassing, self-evident and timeless support in the struggle for intellectual rights). I do not agree with any pressure to change any decision-making procedures for the concerts. The downfall rulers (but also several petty-minded citizens in the area of ​​internet rot) They have it in the corner so as to drop the curse on them if the phase goes wrong.

Personally - because I have never relied on the state nor will I do so now - I have decided the way I will go, self-managing one's position in the new conditions, regardless of the moods of the state.

• I will not apply to a government agency to claim new concerts from other government sponsors. Let those who have the greatest need work for you.

• I am not in the mood to play in front of people in masks, braces and braces from each other. Maybe - and I'm not saying this hypocritically - in places like the Concert Hall and related events, Jaska may not play a significant role in the performance of the event because the indulgence is - almost exclusively - a stroke. In concerts as well as the ones I try to do, what is required is the effect on both the mind and the body so that the coveted Attention can be obtained more easily.


You will miss that. I hope to live when he can again, playing and singing, to feel the ecstasy that Dousiki can bring. As a poor substitute, I'm thinking of giving concerts in a full orchestra and good technical specifications through its process - to put it in Larissa - live streaming. It helps me to have a recording studio and one of his sons who deals with a related subject. At the moment, do exercises on paper.

Good match,

Thanasis, Metaxochori and surroundings

Although the chef put "difficult pieces", he still left a lot out. It makes sense, because there is no way they can fit in 4,30 hours what Thanasis has done.
I leave here only a very difficult but also very characteristic piece, which opens its penultimate album. The title of the album "Invitation to a Cyan Dinner". The title of the song "paper cutter".
Aristotle's father Papaconstantinou recites it on the album

Cardboard cutterâ € <

And we carry our sins
like the oil on their beards the goats.

And then we look for a song
to tell others our apology.

Even if he talks about love,
even if his lyrics
they are stingy butchers
or moons that reflect the moon.

A song, red, blind,
a song wreath,
an uncomfortable stall
under the dome of remorse,
a paper cutter song
for our uncut pages.

Although a fan of Thanasis, I had not read his words about the situation we live in.
The voice of reason is always special.

I also listen to Koutsopoulos' show, it will be fine to spend 4 hours at work.

Awesome tribute, the bagassa Koutsopoulos. Very good. He also played a couple of songs that he has never heard before.
I have been lucky enough to have been to Thanasis' concert twice a week. You will be respected!
