"Ta O" (The O's) //

(referring to the -o endings of the words that are verbs in Greek and denote action)

 

This text was written by my very good friend and established choir director, music pedagogue and improviser in Greece named Constantina Samakovli. Constantina wrote this text of “actions” in December 2020 and dedicated it to me. It is a truly powerful text in Greek.

The music was revealed to me a month later. I decided to go with vocals, piano, and bass. I sing and play all the instruments. The music production took place in my home studio with the help of my musical partner Lefteris Kordis

Below is my translation of the text in English.
