Giannis Koutras sings Thessaloniki, a Greek song referring to the city of Thessaloniki in Greece.
The song “Thessaloniki” is an orchestrated poem written by Nikos Kavvadias, with music composed by Thanos Mikroutsikos.
Thessaloniki is a song of remembrance and nostalgia, a song for those who are away from their city, their home, their land, but their mind and soul always returns there.
Thessaloniki is anyway a city full of people who left and embarked to earn their living, a city where people poor,but brave and proud, always come back.
Kavvadias, the composer of this song, was a man who was traveling a lot, creating temporary new lives at new places and harbors, but his soul was indispensably attached to his land.
