Concert

albanian singer in hania

This poster reminds me of the way I grew up in New Zealand. Every week, there'd be a showing of a Greek film at the local cinema. It is a meaningless poster to most people living in the area, but to the immigrant minority of Albanians in Hania, this is the night they're going to get dressed up to the nines.

  2. είναι καλό να έχεις δεσμούς με την πατρίδα όταν ζεις σε ξένο κράτος, και είναι καλύτερο όταν σέβεσαι τους κανόνες αυτού του καράτους και έχεις τον σεβασμό των πολιτών του.

  4. He looks OK. Like a bouzoukia singer (shiny shirt, suit etc.). I wonder what he sounds like :-)

  5. I looked him up and have some of his music playing in the background right now, very plaintive and a little hypnotic. I imagine it's quite an experience especially if you've had a little wine.
