Silver Alert


Maria Farantouri participates with three songs in this album of poetry by Dimitris Lentzos, from his collection Matutinal Statues, set to music by Chryssa Kottaki. Among them is the title song, Silver Alert: a modern song of protest, an alarm for young people lost in the streets of Athens and big cities, unknown among strangers, without anyone looking for them – except their mother…

The CD is released in an elegant book version.
