No 1, World Music Charts Europe, Jan 2003

5 months in the top 10 World Music Charts Europe


“There haven’t been a lot of Greek singers making a dent in the U.S., but Kristi Stassinopoulou could bridge the language divide…/…The translated lyrics read like haiku, but sung in Greek, they sound like a call to the spirits. Co-composer/producer Stathis Kalyviotis frames the artist’s songs with arrangements that have a very 21st-century folk-music sound…”

JD, BILLBOARD, May 24, 2003



Come dance with me in the dark

come stroll with me in the cave of Ades

and if you hear the sirens scream at night

it’s my heart’s whirlpools that sigh


Spread on the beach burning coals

and the drunken stars dive in the waters

Dizzy sleepwalkers come near the fire

with bare feet they moan and sigh


Waves come and go wildly

they crash on the shore

waking up the pebbles

who sing me a song


My naked body

adorned with seaweed

and scented with saltness

is given to you
