Zahrenia is Gerasimos Papadopoulos’ Album Out Now

Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Gerasimos Papadopoulos in the past but this fantastic artist is back with another masterpiece and these are my thoughts about it.

Zahrenia is Gerasimos Papadopoulos’ Album Out Now

Every time I hear this artist’s music I am truly touched in my soul.

The sound of Gerasimos Papadopoulos is of an impressive quality. The instruments are recorded so well that the strings vibrate intensely and the players seem to be there with you in your house.

Zahrenia takes you to the desert. As soon as you press the play button the reality before your eyes fades away and you begin to see the dunes and the camels. You feel the heat burning your skin, you see colorful markets in the oases, and you imagine odalisques trying to hypnotize you with sinuous dances.

In a world that runs fast, where artists rely on computers and beats, there are artists like Gerasimos Papadopoulos who make real music. This musical project was born to spread musical culture rather than just seek commercial success.

I advise everyone to listen to this wonderful album several times in order to appreciate all its nuances. Savor it like a glass of whiskey aged in small sips to prolong the ecstasy.

Zahrenia is Gerasimos Papadopoulos’ Album Out Now

The composer of oriental music, singer, chanter, oud player and musicologist Gerasimos Papadopoulos records for the first time his own compositions, which were written to accompany the fairy tale “Zahrenia” by the Greek writer Foteini Kaimaki.
Although adapted to the specific conventions of the fairy tale, these musical compositions, due to the deeply symbolic and particularly thoughtful lyrics of the author, were able to become independent and were included in the online album “Zahrenia”, which is released on various music platforms and the composer’s personal websites.

The oriental melodies, played with ney, oud, percussions, and double bass by “Ferah” band, and sung in the composer’s highly ornate voice, take us on a journey through the imaginary journey of the little protagonist of the fairy tale in the desert. As he writes, “Zahrenia can be the object of desire, the airy meaning of existence, a lover or a beloved, the nostalgia of embryonic fullness, any destination – conscious or unconscious – for our wanderings in real or imaginary deserts… The epic journey of the little Bedouin Sefkiet, the protagonist of this tale, is the journey of all of us, who – though we live in the crowd – remain little lonely (and unique) kings of our inner desert, virtually alone in pain, joy, and any deep experience…
