9 Febr Nouvelle Vague


Nouvelle Vague is the title that captures the creative wave of music in Paris in the 1950s, where young artists have imprinted poems and melodies on their songs on poems.
Usually the performer was accompanied by an instrument, guitar or piano, depending on the instrument played by the composer himself.

In Greece  the composer Yiannis Spanos introduced this Nouvelle Vague, who wrote and published at that time many of his songs in Paris where he lived.
In Athens, with the support of the  producer Alekos Patsifas, they introduced the title Nouvelle Vague in Greek discography.

Composers such as Giannis Spanos, Lakis Pappas, Notis Mavroudis, Dionysis Savvopoulos, Linos Kokotos and others wrote at that time, before the mid-60s, leaving  many important songs in the Greek repertoire. In this way, they re-introduced Greek poetry and our poets.

Well known performers of this genre are e.g. Arletta, Yiannis Poulopoulos, Popi Asteriadi, Lakis Pappas, Dimitra Galani, Dionyssis Savvopoulos, George Zografos, Rena Koumioti and others.

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 nine 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.
