In the 60’s  the music scene  flourished in a specific type of ‘boîte de nuit’  in Athen’s Plaka  that became the birth place of the Greek new wave music. In these small live music clubs, the so called “boites”, many Greek composers and singers first performed that new style of Greek music inspired from the musical stream of the 60s in France and Italy.
That was the time when the ‘παρέες’ wrote history!

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socialising, good books and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and , there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world.But I never lost my love of Crete for a minute. And four years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
