Dimitris Zervoudakis visits ”Our Town” | 07 Apr. 2024

On Sunday, April 7th, the show “Our Town” hosted Dimitris Zervoudakis.

The important songwriter talked about his first band, Neoi Epivates, which impressed Yannis Markopoulos and was the reason for their collaboration, but also for his key collaborations with other important creators in the field.

The guest artist made special reference to his city, Thessaloniki, its personalities (Argyris Bakirtzis, Dinos Christianopoulos, Sakis Papadimitriou, Nikos Papazoglou, Dionysis Savvopoulos etc.) as well as to the many new bands that “bloom” there today.

He talked about his love for rebetiko but also for rock, about the fairy tales he listened to as a child in Navarinou Square, which for him is the middle of the world. He told us that the city for him is a “glass ship” and “birds are love and trees”.

He talked to us about his audience, the collectives, the social struggles, the politics that interests him mainly for human rights and for safeguarding cultural life in our country.

The show featured songs from all his journey that were loved and brought him to a special spot on the country’s musical map.

The show attempts to establish a distinct ‘radio society’. A town within a town, occupied by intriguing personalities, cultural spaces and organizations, musicians, and theatrical groups who altogether build new social trails through culture, art, music, and poetry. It might initially sound utopic, but at the end of the day, the show simply aims to slightly enrich our lives and our everyday routine by keeping us good company.
