Vosporos – Alkinoos Ioannidis

Alkinoos Ioannidis sings Vosporos, a Greek song written and composed by Nikos Zoudiaris. Vosporos refers to the sea of Bosporus, a very important region for the Greeks, full of memories of the past.

The song Vosporos is a song talking directly to the hearts of Greeks, full of references to the beloved Polis, Constantinople, or as known today Istanbul.

There is some sort of melancholy for the Greeks when visiting Constantinople, which is more evident to those who are somehow related to this city, whether because some family members used to live there, or because of the overall conflict between the Greeks and Turks throughout the centuries.

A touching song, with powerful and descriptive lyrics written by Zoudiaris, sung by the amazing Alkinoos Ioannidis, whose voice is just perfect for such moving songs.
