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.
