Anastasios Misyrlis – Fotis Siotas

The River That Longed to Flow Backwards
by Eleni Fotaki

A musical fairytale by well-known lyricist Eleni Fotaki, inspired by and per-formed by musicians Fotis Siotas and Anastasios Misyrlis, who have also scored music for it, and narrated by actress Iro Bezou. Original compositions are woven together with famous French musical themes and world music. The fairytale is inspired by Pierre Attaingnant’s French Baroque song ‘Tourdion’ (1530), adapted into Greek by Stathis Chatzioannidis as To Potami. Through music and singing, the little ones and the grown-ups will be immersed into the story of the little river, its journey and quest towards finding out a way to be happy. Along the road, the river will discover the wisdom inherent in moving forwards, being constantly on the move, and retaining continuity.
