Athens: Herodes Atticus Concert

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Presenting songs from her 30-year career, Lena Platonos will perform for the first time at Athens’ Herod Atticus Theatre tonight. Youngsters who grew up listening to her songs for the popular radio show “Lilipoupoli” followed her at her next work called “Sabotage” and even at her later turn to electronic music. Lena Platonos has contributed much to the Greek electronic music scene with records such as Maskes Iliou, Gallup, Lepidoptera, at a time when this kind of electronic narration of Greek reality did not have the impact one would expect.  Listen to Lena Platonos’s music at MySpace; Athens Festival: Lena Platonos in concert
