Following last year’s successful concert, Melodia FM returns to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus for yet another summer evening full of much-beloved songs. Nikos Portokaloglou, founding member of Fatme, together with the Melodia team, will present a musical flashback to songs which musically represented the ‘other side’ of the 1980s; songs which questioned and resisted the facile, fake prosperity of that age and its aesthetics; songs which ultimately shaped contemporary Greek music.

Portokaloglou will be joined on stage by old and new friends alike for a journey back in time through the legacy of great composers such as Manos Hadjidakis, Mikis Theodorakis and Stavros Xarchakos, as well as in songs of bands that introduced Western music to Greece, including Fatme, Termites, Trypes and Mousikes Taxiarchies. We will also enjoy songs of the Thessaloniki school of musicians, which gave a modern spin to the notion of Greekness such as those composed by Nikos Xydakis, Manolis Rassoulis and Nikos Papazoglou, as well as songs representative of the ‘80s avant-garde scene, among which Thanos Mikroutsikos’ melodies, Vangelis Germanos’ urban ballads and Lena Platonos’ electronic music that was ahead of its time.

As part of the Athens & Epidaurus Festival 2020. Nikos Portokaloglou, along with the Melodia team, will present a musical flashback to 80s songs.
