AORATOS” is the debut album of composer, producer, performer Pericles Kanaris. Few years back, Kanaris had met Greek legendary poet/lyricist Manos Eleftheriou by a twist of fate. This led to a collaboration when Eleftheriou entrusted him with 7 unpublished poems. Kanaris composed the music and went ahead to produce the songs independently, bringing together some of his favorite artists from his 2 musical homes: Athens and New York. “Aoratos” was born as a result, featuring the work of an array of internationally recognized artists from around the globe, some of them Grammy Award winners. Guest vocalists include: Vasilis Papakonstantinou, Kostas Makedonas, Rita Antonopoulou and Lamprini Karakosta. The songs are available in mp3 format through a variety of digital outlets. The CD, however, is a collector’s edition, featuring the stunning artwork of internationally acclaimed artist Lydia Venieri, as well as English translations of the poems.
