ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For a year, the musician recorded the sounds of immigrants praying in overt and concealed places around Athens. The religious groups include Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Christians of various denominations and multiple ethnic origins (Ethiopian, Afghan, Pakistani, Senegalese, etc.). The project does not stop at the level of the field recording; instead the musician, as a local observer, embraces all these sounds with his personal musical comment, always with modesty and respect.

It is a project that highlights the positive elements of the coexistence with all these 'other' people and at the same time reminds us of the value of the experiential use of music.
