Kostas Siderokastritis and Thanasis Tsakirakis join forces and present in a concert-celebration their first album on Friday December 01, 2023 at PLYFA.
Kostas Sidirokastritis Group – First Colour
Kostas Siderokastritis is a singer-songwriter and street musician based in Athens. His personal work is an unpretentious mix of song-oriented musical genres and improvisation. Together with his dear friends and collaborators Haris Charalambous (bass), Pantelis Takis (drums) and Andreas Polyzogopoulos (trumpet), and with the help of Grigoris Kollias in sound engineering, they recorded the first album of the Kostas Sidirokastritis Group, “First Color’ The disc is a collection of 10 of the first songs of the format, just one of the points of reference in a journey and a trigger for more beautiful things.
Thanasis Tsakirakis – Scent Remains
Thanasis Tsakirakis is a musician based in Athens. Although more widely known in the music world as a drummer, in October 2023 he released “Scent Remains”, his first record as a songwriter, for which he wrote the music, lyrics, sang and played most of the instruments. The recording and production was undertaken by Fotis Papatheodorou and Page Blank. Artists such as Radiohead, Porcupine Tree, Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith (and of course many more) have had a characteristic influence on the style of the album. These songs are an open dialogue with our nostalgic instincts, a mantra to avoid beautifying passion and an attempt to analyse, understand and accept the page changes that arise in life. The entire “Scent Remains”, as well as a small selection of tracks that influenced its creation, will be presented live by Thanasis Tsakirakis, who will be accompanied by an excellent band, especially creative collaborators.
