Haris Alexiou’s great singing odyssey reaches a end

One of the most mainstream singers in Greece, Haris Alexiou reported that she’s resigning from singing, during a meeting.

The notable artist showed up in the Greek melodic scene in the mid ’70s. Their appealling voice, joined with a remarkable method of performing and a solid picturesque nearness, drove her to the top. Today she is still at the top, continually buckling down, continually looking for better approaches for articulation and continually giving eminence and incentive to the contemporary light and mainstream Greek music.

The artist of “Απόψε θέλω να πιω” said they was managing some voice issues that were enduring and she believed she was unable to do it well any longer. The choice was “troublesome and an intense one.”

“I have completely departed from singing. I can’t sing like I used to. And I will not continue doing it if I cannot do it well. You will soon hear me in a song with Jasmine, a duet we did together… I recorded it last summer. It’s a ballad that I could sing, but my voice no longer ‘listens’ to me and I said it’s better to stop. It is not right,” they said.

Named “Haroula” (“Little Grace”) by her fans, Alexiou has developed as perhaps the best case of the profound, guttural style of Greek Byzantine singing.

She has worked with the most significant Greek musicians, has performed at the best melodic venues in each of the five landmasses and has gotten a few significant honors.

From Greece to Australia, from Russia to Africa, from America to Japan, Haris Alexiou goes around and shows the world the sentiment of the Greek melody.

In May 2010, one of the central avenues of Gaziemir, a region of Izmir/Turkey, was named after Haris Alexiou, whose precursors originated from the city. The road naming service, facilitated by the city hall leader of Gaziemir himself, was a genuine respect for her.

Alexiou immovably accepts that the Greek tune, through its writers and arrangers, made her to love and better comprehend the history and the way of life of her nation.
