Dimitra Galani sings Akrogiales Dilina, a very popular Greek song that means “Seashores and Sunsets”, one of the most beloved laika song, composed by Vasilis Tsitsanis, an immensely important Greek Composer.
The song reflects the pain and quest of a woman, trying to find her love, “wandering as a shadow alone on earth“. As all Laika Songs, Akrogialies Dilina refers to the alluring effect of love, the highly disorienting feeling of quest “She may have been allured by seashores and sunsets“…
Vasilis Tsitsanis wrote this marvellous melody in 1948 and the song was originally performed by Stella Haskil, and later sung by many important singers of the present times. Here we hear Akrogialies Dilina by Dimitra Galani.
