About the Μπουάτ *Βοîte” – New Wave Songs:

In the 60s  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.
The New Wave was characterized by compositions with expressive austerity and sensitivity, and contained many elements borrowed from the ballad. It was based on the sensitivity of prominent composers of the time (notably Manos Hadjidakis).
The lyrics in the songs of the New Wave have erotic, social and political content.

Lydia

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing 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 for Crete for a minute. And six 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.
