Greeks sing Mikis Theodorakis songs in solidarity with Turkey and Syria


A Greek children’s choir have sung songs by the late Mikis Theodorakis near the Acropolis in Athens, Greece on Tuesday in solidarity with children in Turkey and Syria impacted by the recent earthquakes.

According to, the children’s choir of the Mikis Theodorakis Museum in Zatouna were conducted by Stefanos Kardiolakas.

They sang ‘Tis dikaiosynis ilie noite’ and ‘Tis agapis aimata’ – two of Theodorakis’ most well-known compositions based off the poems of Odysseus Elytis.

Kardiolakas said the event was the children’s initiative to “send a message of love, compassion, and solidarity” to the people of Turkey and Syria.

“[The event] is Mikis’ legacy: to build bridges of friendship and peace with our neighbours. With the children’s voices, the poetry of Nobel-prize winner Odysseas Elytis and the music of Theodorakis, we are sending a big hug,” Kardiolakas concluded.
