In the context of the projects and events for the 200 years after the Greek Revolution, "Greece 2021" Committee presents a series of commemorative podcasts with Dionysis Savvopoulos, dedicated to the 200 years of Greek song.
The first broadcast of the series is entitled "DANCE-DANCE", with festive songs from 1821 to the present day. It is available as of 10:00 am on Easter Sunday, May 2, 2021, at the Committee's website www.greece2021.gr and at the www.lifo.gr website, and is dedicated, due to the day’s festive and cheerful sentiment, to all of us.
At a time when the music industry is particularly affected by the pandemic, the Committee wants to actively contribute to preserving the advancement of Greek song, which is part of the experiential history of the country and each one's personal story.
So, through the series of anniversary podcasts, the beloved songwriter Dionysis Savvopoulos will capture and appraise, merrily, the course of the Greek song from 1821 to the present and highlight the musical features of the 200-year journey of modern Greece.
More podcasts will follow "DANCE-DANCE" throughout the anniversary year. In these broadcasts, Dionysis Savvopoulos collaborates with musicologist Professor Lambros Liavas, journalist, collector, and researcher Giorgos Kontogiannis, and painter Alexis Kyritsopoulos.
The above stated project is a contribution of the "Greece 2021" Committee. The Committee does not receive State funding, and its proceeds come exclusively from sponsorships and its Numismatic Programme, which is implemented with the Bank of Greece's kind sponsorship. It includes 14 collector coins available through its e-shop at shop.greece2021.gr
