Press Release / Description:

ROSS DALY EVGENIA DAMAVOLITI-TOLI “OSI HARA ‘HOUN TA POULIA" Εvgenia Damavoliti-Toli is one of those very rare singers who sings not just with her voice but with her whole being, without keeping any distance from her material, but while also maintaining a uniquely balanced expressional integrity free of any excess and unnecessary mannerisms. This aspect of her singing is typical of all of the great "classical" singers of the Cretan tradition, and it is exactly that which gives her such a completely natural sound which results in her truly owning her repertoire. She herself chose all of the lyrics in this collection, a fact which reveals her ability to discover and reveal each melody creatively through the medium of the verse of some of Crete's finest contemporary poets as well as through the rhyming couplets of the great Cretan bard of the latter half of the16th century Vitsentzos Kornaros. My deepest thanks go to all who participated in this recording, I enjoyed enormously every moment of our work together. Ross Daly Archanes 2016
