B) Hello. Yassou. I am new. I only know a few words of Greek. I like Greek music, especially Yiannis kotsiras singing. Through his songs I am introduced to a wealth of great composers, poets, musicians. I would like to know more of course. For instance, do you know if Kotsiras is touring right now. I am trying to add my Kotsiras drawing by following the instructions you have somewhere else on the forum! I do have the drawing in my browser, but I don't know how to download it. Silly me.

Would you please help me with lyrics? I would need help with the translation into English of the song called "Osa einai na 'rthoune". I have the Greek lyrics if you need them. The song can be heard on Yiannis Kotsiras myspace.com site.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Όσα είναι να 'ρθουν

Όσα γράφουν οι κασέτες, θα 'ρθούν.
Όσα γράφει ο ιδρώτας, θα 'ρθούν.
Όσα κρύβει το μυαλό μας, θα 'ρθούν.
Αχ! Όσα είναι να 'ρθουνε, θα 'ρθούν.

Φεύγουνε οι μέρες πονάμε, θα 'ρθούν.
Στάζουν δάκρυα οι καθρέφτες, θα 'ρθούν.
Όσα δεν χωρούν σε κουβέντες, θα 'ρθούν.
Αχ! Όσα είναι να 'ρθουνε, θα 'ρθούν.

¶λλο μη μου κλαις, μη φοβάσαι.
Έχω να σου δώσω όσα δεν πήρες ποτέ,
θέλω να ματώσω ν' ανοίξω πληγές,
για όσα δε γεννήθηκα να κάνω, μην κλαις.
Αχ! Όσα είναι να 'ρθουνε, θα 'ρθούν.

Πέρασες πολλά που δε θέλεις να 'ρθούν.
Χίλιες-δυο ζωές να σου δώσω, θα 'ρθούν.
Θέλω χίλια-δυο σημάδια να 'ρθούν.
Αχ! Όσα είναι να 'ρθουνε, θα 'ρθούν.

¶λλο μη μου κλαις, μη φοβάσαι,
σου γράφω για το χάδι σου που είναι μακριά,
σβήνω στο λαχάνιασμα που ακούω γλυκά,
λειώνω μες το δάκρυ σου, στάζεις φωτιά.
Αχ! Όσα είναι να 'ρθουνε.
Αχ! Να μπορούσαν να 'ρθουνε.
Αχ! Όσα είναι να 'ρθουνε θα 'ρθούν.
-------------------------------------------------------------


Those who are to come.

What is written on the the cassettes, they will come.
What is written by sweat, they will come.
What is hidden our brains, they will come.
Ah! Whatever will come, will come.

Leave the days aches, they will come.
The mirrors are dripping tears, they will come.
Those things that don't fit in conversations, they will come.
Ah! Whatever will come, will come.

Don't cry on me, don't be afraid.
I have to give you those you never took,
I want to bleed, I want to open wounds,
For those I wasn't born to do don't cry.
Ah! Whatever will come, will come.

You've been through a lot that you don't want to come, they will come.
[even if] I give you A Thousand and two lives, they will come.
I want a thousand and two marks, that they will come.
Ah! Whatever will come, will come.

Don't cry on me, you are not afraid.
you I write for your caress that is far,
I melt in the gasping that I hear gently,
I melt with your teardrop, dripping fire.
Ah! Whatever will come, will come.
Ah! They will come.
Ah! Whatever will come, will come.

Hi everybody. I read on Yiannis Kotsiras' myspace.com site the list of his Summer performances. Crete is included. Will anybody from this forum report on the gigs? You might read reviews in the local news if you don't attend and I would love to know some details after Yiannis Kotsiras shows are held in Crete.
In fact any news about the singer would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
Take care,
Col :)

Hi. Yiannis Kotsiras will perform in Crete soon. If you attend the concerts (s), would you tell us here. (I would publish it on my site, with your permission of course). If only I could leave NY and go there!
Here are the concert dates:

Theatro Anatolikis Tafrou Crete Chania
Jul 12 2007 8:30P

Just these names sound wonderful.
Take care,
