“Pοulim to sevtaloukis” is a love song released by the Pontian-speaking artist from Trabzon (Trapezounta) Adem Ekiz Beşköylü 2018 together with the also Pontian-speaking singer Zeynep Başkan.
This song is performed by Giorgos Stefanidis in a series of recordings entitled “Ta Mavrothalassitika” (Songs of the Black Sea). He is accompanied by vocalist Anna Solahidou, as well as the musicians Giorgos Siamidis, Kostas Foulidis and Dimitris Kynigopoulos. The song is edited and orchestrated by Dimitris Kynigopoulos (Studio Ark).
Giorgos Stefanidis gives this song, in our opinion, an authentic color with a pure Pontian hue, without altering the authenticity of the song as presented by Adem Ekiz. The presence of Anna Solahidou is sweet and pleasant with a fresh air, and joins in a perfect way with the solid voice of Giorgos Stefanidis.
In the description of the video we read “this is the first song we present to you from the music selection” Ta Mavrothalassitika”. It contains music from the Black Sea, old traditional melodies and contemporary creations of young artists from the wider area of Trabzon (Trapezounta). Happy listening!”
We wish our dear friend Giorgos Stefanidis good luck in his song and we look forward to the release of the other songs in this collection!
