    Default Amethystos - listen to this song! Loizos was such a genius!

    Listen! This song switches back and forth between hasapiko and zeimbekiko - hasapiko for the verse and zeimbekiko for the chorus ...

    Amazing !!!!! Brilliant !!!! Very difficult to mix these rhythms in the same song, and still make a beautiful song !

    Even if Loizos was a talented composer, mixing these rhythms isn't something that unusual ....

    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"

    Thank you as always, file mou! I will let our friend Panos (the young composer from Volos) know that you remember another one ....

    By the way, your memory of songs is amazing - and your ability to retrieve them from your memory is also amazing.

    Also, I wanted to let you know that I think finally learned the right word for the Greek rhythm that sounds like karsilama - it is "aptaliko". Do you agree? This is what I was told by a professional bouzouki player in Greece (Nikos Rizos) who played for Manolis Aggelopoulos ...

    Thanks for your kind words David. Unfortunately I'm unaware of the correct answer to your question.
