ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songs from a country with villages that literary hang from the sides of tall mountains and melodies from islands situated in a deep blue sea, with painted white houses sparkling in the bright yellow sun- Greece! a Far Away Land. These melodies, pieces of land and sea, offer and appreciation of authentic Greek music which contains a perfect balance between life and death, joy and despair, Eastern and Western civilizations. In what often called the crossroad between the East and the West, Greece has always been a land where the Arts were at the heart of peoples' lives. Balancing Dionysian spirit with the discipline of Christianity, what is offered us today in Greek music is a book of sounds and colors that travel back throughout the centuries and which is homogeneous yet so diverse at the same time. Songs of joy and celebration, tragic ballads and laments for those who left home. Despite the various conquerors of the country,music instead of being silenced was actually enriched and adopted new elements in such a way that Greek music is as unique as the land that gave birth to it... Panayotis

Exquisite!
The bass vocals of Mr. Terzakis are second to none..this album is the best Greek CD I own! The clarity of the production as well as the wonderful phrasing and emotions of the singer are great pros of this work. "Lianohortaroudia", "Halasia Mou" and "Xenitemena Mou Poulia" the best so far... My congrats!

Wonderful Traditional Greek/Folk music
Panayotis Terzakis' strong and powerful bass voice will impress you on the album "Far Away Land." This CD of traditional Greek/Folk music is taken to a new level with the well-trained bass vocals of Terzakis. He sings in the language of Greek and if you don’t understand the language, you can still feel the poignant and emotive lyrics. He even harmonizes and doubles his vocals on many tracks such as “Ti Kako Kama O Kaimenos -album Version." You can hear the unique blend of Eastern and Western styles of music with " Perivolin Eixa Papia M'/arcadian Dance." Some tracks are A Cappella while others offer a timbre of an exotic array of instruments that all play well together, giving it the traditional Greek flavor. "Far Away Land" is a touching and memorable CD filled with wonderful traditional Greek/Folk music.
