The sublime voice of Nana December 17, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Music Life Greek.

In her first ever performance on Dominican soil, Greek singer Nana Mouskouri enjoyed a spontaneous rapport with her Santo Domingo audience who gave her two standing ovations at the National Theater last night.

The Greek diva proved that music is indeed the universal language, evoking strong emotions no matter where it may come from. The audience in the Eduardo Brito Hall was treated to two hours of songs in five languages: Greek, Italian, French, English and Spanish.

Mouskouri, one of the world’s best-selling singers, opened her set with a song in Greek. She was accompanied by six backing musicians.

The high point of the evening as far as the audience was concerned was when she sang a series of numbers in Spanish. “Amapola” was one of the first, before thanking her hosts for “inviting me to such a beautiful country with such nice people”. She went on to sing “Linda golondrina”, “Bésame mucho” and “Siboney”.

It was an unforgettable evening for everyone present, who listened her versions of Spanish language classics like “Placer de amor”, “Eternamente Yolanda”, “Malagueña salerosa” and “Cucurucucú, paloma”.
