"Rebetiko Gymnastas" - Vinicio Capossela
After the sea, the port. Ports are for music what pollens are for flowers. In this album there are musics of port that take physical exercise and practice one-to-one indiscipline. Horses that try to be giraffes. It's an album played in greek, for all that we owe to Greece, the country who gave the world one of the most amazing music ever: the rebetiko. We have released "Rebetiko Gymnastas" in the olympic year as an exercise of rebellion and identity, just to practice the mangas inside us. Just to remember that we are original, that we originate from something, that we are men and not consumers and though not afraid to consume life.
