Alkistis Protopsalti & Goran Bregovic - Paradextika - 1991

The Great Greek diva Alkistis Protopsalti and Goran Bregovic, Greece and the Balkans united by music. The fusion of Alkistis' voice interpreting Balkan songs in Greek tradition and instrumental base half-Balkan half-Greek. The result is a delight for the senses. The combination of this union in this album achieves a stunning level of transmission. I hope you enjoy it.
 
 My next album was a significant milestone on my musical journey. It was summer and a friend of mine, Costas Cotoulas, suggested that I see Emil Kusturitsa’s film “THE TIME OF THE GYPSIES” mainly to hear Goran Bregovic’s songs and music. It was love at first sight. The experiences we lived through with the gypsies are unforgettable. Their unconventional way of life, their inconsistency, their nonexistent professionalism all faded as soon as they entered the studio.

Their passion, energy and talent not only flooded the recording studio but also our hearts. Goran Bregovic is charismatic. So is Lina Nikolakopoulou whose lyrics achieved the absolute in expression. Aristidis Moschos playing the sandouri in his orchestra perfectly blended the Greek and the Gypsy souls. Sealing this collaboration Moschos gave me the song SAGAPO GIATI EISAI ORAIA which he had written many years ago for the sole companion of his life, Mrs. Angelika.

 En una entrevista Alkistis Protopsalti dice:
Mi álbum Paradextika fue un hito importante en mi viaje musical. Era verano y un amigo mío, Costas Cotoulas, me sugirió que viera la película de Emir Kusturica "El tiempo de los gitanos", principalmente para escuchar las canciones y la música de Goran Bregovic. Fue amor a primera vista. Las experiencias que vivimos a través de la musica de los gitanos son inolvidables. Su forma no convencional de la vida, su inconsistencia, su inexistente profesionalidad todo se desvaneció tan pronto como entramos en el estudio.

Su pasión, la energía y el talento no sólo inundaron el estudio de grabación, sino también a nuestros corazones. Goran Bregovic es un personaje carismático.

Lina Nikolakopoulou con sus letras ha logrado la absoluta belleza en la expresión.

Moschos Aristidis tocando el sandouri con su orquesta, combinan perfectamente el griego y las almas gitanas.
