There are a number of us that are musicians, but are
frustrated that our fellow Hellenes do not come out and
give moral support. It is a bit embarassing and ironic
that similar people to the Greeks---the Italians and
Jews---go "all out" to support the talent in their
communities, while the Greeks really don't.
But part of the problem has to do with awareness of
the talent our brothers and sisters have. I have come
forward to set up a forum to showcase the Hellenes
who perform and write music.
This does not neccessarily mean Greek music only. But
in the first bunch of songs, there is a totally diverse
set....from alternative to teen pop to techno to
metal to new age........
Although this is oriented towards Greek-Americans, all
Hellenes are welcome. In fact, some of the featured
artists are from Australia and Cyprus.
To pull this up, use the URL www.mp3.com, and then go
to the "Stations" section. Pull up "Greeks Worldwide
Station" and there you are.....
If you are a musician, or know of any in the
community who needs exposure, please send me an
e-note to make arrangements to get some songs out there.
Again, we as a community need to be aware of the talent
that's out there.
