Mikis Theodorakis & Zülfü Livaneli: The legendary icons of Greek and Turkish music singing Together!

It has been dedicated to Turkish and Greek friendship!

Together! was recorded live on the Berlin concert
and was released on the day whitch was planned for the cyprus concert: Friday June the 13th.

Early May 1997 the legendary Icons Mikis Theodorakis (Greece) and Zülfü Livaneli (Turkey) united again to start a series of concerts in Europe with a planned final concert on the green line of Nikosia / Cyprus. In the beginning of 1997 the releations between the two meditarranean countries had become worse.

The first concert in Berlin (House of World Cultures) was totally sold out. It turned to stay the one and only of the planned tour, as Mikis Theodorakis had to cancel all other concerts right after the final standing ovations in Berlin due to serious health problems. The next day he was hospitalized in Athens.

Both the concert and the live album Together! symbolize a very special teamwork of Greek and Turkish people - the whole project needed a lot of sensibility from the first idea until the finished product. While this CD was released there were still violent riots in Cyprus.
Zülfü Livaneli gave a series of protest-concerts in Turkey for 800.000 people. The 18 songs on Together! in Turkish & Greek language are the most important ones sung by their composers Mikis and Zülfü.

The CD unites musicians from Turkey, Greece & Germany. The bouzouki is played by Lakis Karnezis (of Alexis Sorbas theme fame) while Halil Karadouman plays the Kanoun.

This concert is unique in its sense of togetherness, spirit, poetry & music.
Enjoy and be together with us.
