After all these years of singing these songs what I can definitely say is that every single word and note has had a very special meaning for me as it describes in a multiplicity of ways who I am, how I feel and where I happen to be. These four American songs plus an original inspired during a trip in the Keys (Florida), are a small token of appreciation and respect for the hundreds of friends, whether these be musicians or not, whom I’ve met through the years across the ocean and who have contributed to the shaping of my personality in a variety of ways. I cannot but be more humble and grateful at the same time! I hope you enjoy this American musical road trip with its dark and bright colors and I hope and pray we all stay free.
“Always be, through the dark, always FREE!”
Much love, Panayotis
A Change is Gonna Come
Is it gonna ever come? Discrimination is still all around…through bad moments though we can become stronger!
Country Roads, Take Me Home
Greeks say: “Where is Earth, it is Home”
“I wear this crown of ****, upon my liar’s chair” Painful but true.
I got inspired during a journey in the Keys. The landscape during the dawn was breathtaking. Freedom all around.
“Right on the edge but I won’t fall.” Hope I keep this promise.

Panayotis Terzakis' strong and powerful bass voice will impress you on the album "Far Away Land." This CD of traditional Greek/Folk music is taken to a new level with the well-trained bass vocals of Terzakis. He sings in the language of Greek and if you don’t understand the language, you can still feel the poignant and emotive lyrics. He even harmonizes and doubles his vocals on many tracks such as “Ti Kako Kama O Kaimenos -album Version." You can hear the unique blend of Eastern and Western styles of music with " Perivolin Eixa Papia M'/arcadian Dance." Some tracks are A Cappella while others offer a timbre of an exotic array of instruments that all play well together, giving it the traditional Greek flavor. "Far Away Land" is a touching and memorable CD filled with wonderful traditional Greek/Folk music.

Panayotis Terzakis: Far Away Land
|POSTED BY: Panagiotis Terzakis||POSTED ON: 14 Oct 2009 11:37 PM|
Eleven Greek Folk songs with the powerful, bass vocals of Panayotis Terzakis, from his own unique and modern perspective.
All Songs Greek traditional. Newly arranged and sung by Panayotis Terzakisexcept "Yianni Mou To Mantili Sou" arr. by Constantine Caravassilis
Songs from a country with villages that literary hang from the sides of tall mountains and melodies from islands situated in a deep blue sea, with painted white houses sparkling in the bright yellow sun- Greece! a Far Away Land. These melodies, pieces of land and sea, offer and appreciation of authentic Greek music which contains a perfect balance between life and death, joy and despair, Eastern and Western civilizations. In what often called the crossroad between the East and the West, Greece has always been a land where the Arts were at the heart of peoples' lives. Balancing Dionysian spirit with the discipline of Christianity, what is offered us today in Greek music is a book of sounds and colors that travel back throughout the centuries and which is homogeneous yet so diverse at the same time. Songs of joy and celebration, tragic ballads and laments for those who left home. Despite the various conquerors of the country,music instead of being silenced was actually enriched and adopted new elements in such a way that Greek music is as unique as the land that gave birth to it... Panayotis
