Grigoris Bithikotsis sings Eimai aitos horis ftera, a popular and highly appreciated Greek song that translates to ” I am an Eagle without wings”.
Grigoris Bithikotsis sings one of the most significant songs in Greek Music, a one of the popular rebetika songs. Eimai aitos horis ftera was one of his greatest hits, and despite the fact that this song is sung today by many contemporain artists and singers, it’s hard to deliver a performance with the strength of Bithikotsis’ performance as well as the depth and lyricism in his voice.
Eimai aitos horis ftera is one of the songs whose creators are among the leading creators in Greek Music; Manos Hadjidakis composed the music, proving that except for the melancholic ballads and the lovely tones his genius can produce rebetika and laika songs as well, and Eftichia Papagianopoulou one of the greatest lyricists born in this country.
Three major personalities meet and create one of the most invaluable songs of the Greek Repertoire. Eimai aitos horis ftera is also a very popular zeibekiko song.
