"I am really pleased to announce my new solo LP “Antiqua Graecia” by IKUISUUS label. Digital pre-orders available now, while the official release date is March 25th, which is a National Holiday in Greece and this year celebrating (or at least was supposed to) 200 years of National Independence (or not?). Strange times to celebrate anything really, but this paradox is already included inside the music of this album.

The LP version will be available in late April and vinyl pre-orders will also be available in March 25th. 300 limited copies, so no messing around if you want to have it.

'Antiqua Graecia' is the third part of the trilogy of electroacoustic compositions inspired by Greek music culture. Following the previous two relevant releases, which are capturing the vibe of Cretan tradition (Musique Con Crete) and rembetiko music (D.A.D), ‘Antiqua Graecia’ comes to complete the cycle by capturing the essence of the rural mainland countryside. While references of antique Greek folk instruments and voices are present all across the album, the narrative is mainly assembled by analogue synthesizers and computer music arrangements, reconstructing the pieces of folk originals into a music collage depicting the vibe of (one more) dying folklore culture, towards a future reincarnation of it. Kind regards, Tasos Stamou http://www.tasosstamou.com"
