Nana Mouskouri

Maison symphonique May 19, 2018

A woman and her world of music…

She has cut her hair a little, but still wears those famous glasses that make her recognizable the world over. In Athens, Tokyo, Paris, Beijing, Rome, New York and elsewhere, Nana Mouskouri, the Greek legend, attracts legions of admirers wherever she performs. With an estimated four hundred million copies sold, Nana Mouskouri is one among the top twenty-five recording artists of all time. Nana has been touring successfully since the 60s. Forever Young, a tour that has earned its title, brings us many of her most beautiful songs… Song for Liberty, The White Rose of Athens, Soleil Soleil, etc., etc. The woman who once said that music was her first love, has no intention to end her career. The Forever Young Tour is a new journey, going back to the beginnings through the waters of youth. Dreams do not wither - neither do songs. They are bubbles of eternity embracing our memories, the soundtrack of our lives.

Nana Mouskouri devotes her inspiration to the artists she's met along the road, people from countless countries, who taught her to love words and notes. Just like Dorothy who, in The Wizard of Oz, the movie from Nana's childhood, shares so many destinies, adventures and talents along the Yellow Brick Road. 60 years of music and fantastic friendships: Michel Legrand, Quincy Jones, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, Serge Gainsbourg, Mark Knopfler, Manos Hadjdakis, Nikos Gatsos, Serge Lama, Francis Cabrel… and so many others from here and there, from yesterday and today. "No matter what you want to achieve, all that counts is the way to get there. Why, how and with whom you travel!" she claims. A progress in love and music, a way to learn and understand, a course to be served and honoured…
