What a privilege to see Mixalis Tzouganakis and band playing near Heraklion this week!! In Paris quality music like this would be played in a ritzy concert hall with all the paupers (like me) stuck on hard seats right at the back, whilst here on Crete you can get close enough to count beads of sweat. Watching Tzouganakis painting his chromatic scale is like watching an artist creating a canvas. Passionate and inspired, you can almost see him 'thinking' the following segue whilst his marvellous musicians follow every move. And if you don't believe me, watch this video Then go catch a concert yourself. Thavma!
