An easy choice of music today but a bit of a rough week. My beautiful cousin passed away in a car accident last weekend and I’ve chosen this song in her honour. She was an award-winning dancer who spoke several languages including Greek, Spanish, Italian, Hebrew and English. Hundreds of people attended her funeral on Monday including many of her dance and art pupils. I chose this song because it makes me happy and I can just imagine that she is teaching the angels to dance right now.
Despina Vandi is a phenomenally popular Greek singer and “Geia” is one of her biggest hits. This track was playing everywhere when we visited Turkey in 2008.
