Yiannis Dimitras and Maria Katira - Erana ,LP,1978,Greece

Here's a 6-star rarity from Pokora's Record Collector dreams.A greek LP by Yiannis Dimitras and Maria Katira, both involved in the early 70s greek music idiom called "neo kyma"(new wave).Collaborated in the 70s with M. Hadjidakis,Mikis Theodorakis, these are the so called left winged artists of the greek early 70s( everything innovative and liberal in the junta period was considered left winged).This LP is excellent acoustic acid folk much inspired by greek traditional music (especiaally music from Ipeiros).Acoustic organs mostly,excellent voices,blending the green sunny atmosphere of greek land and the blue sea of Aegean(this sounds a bit like advertisement for Grce,which was not actually intended) .Anyway,highly recommented to every acid folk fan.
