Kristi Stassinopoulou - Echotropia [1999]


'Kristi and friends make hypnotic ethno-trance tunes featuring folk instruments from Greece and Asia Minor mixed with psychedelic and Balkan polyrhythms. Her haunting vocal lines (inspired by Byzantine psalmody) are cut into Eurobeat mixes for contemporary world music is that sound, turned around.'

“Ol’ Tim Leary woulda’ LUVVED this worldbeat/folk adventure! Kristi sings in Greek, but you’d think you were at an “Airplane” concert (with slightly more emphasis on th’ percussion than Grace Slick might’ve had). This is NOT the (dreaded) sloppy techno-rawk it could have been… it doesn’t sound (in the least) like low-end  cut/paste electronics, & that’s a LARGE plus for the listener…/…there are some very clearly psychedelic influences that take me (in a FLASH, mon’) back to some wild concert nights in th’ ‘60s!…/…you’ll get LOST in the echoes, floatin’ off on a Persian carpet into la-la land…/…The CD definitely rates a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from this reviewer.”





Enjoy!

Thank you for your comments!

Yes,Kristi (and Stathis) they are amazing artists and they've driven far into this greekadelia style.Unfortunately,they are much underrated in Greece.
