Once in a while comes a song that exceeds even the artist’s own expectations: the perfect marriage of lyrics and music, that gives you goosebumps upon hearing it while your heart skips a beat mesmerized and moved by the strength of its visceral beauty.
Such a song has arrived and it’s called Μέσα Στη Σιωπή ( Inside The Silence ) written and performed by the very talented Chrysoula Stefanaki.
Released by Polydor Records only three days ago, the song has already surpassed 5,000 plays on Youtube; a reflection of its potency and audience appeal.
The lyrics, in Greek, are quite the poetry.
“Her interpretation is outstanding. The beautiful lyrics acquire a life of their own through the truly unique voice of Chrysoula Stefanaki.” says Polydor Records.
Usually performing songs written for her, this is the first time Stefanaki attempted to write both lyrics and music for a song. Inside The Silence has certainly proved she can do it all!
“Music is my life!” she tells Greek City Times.
Her performance collaborations include some of the biggest names in Greece, composers and performers alike, including Mimis Plessas, Giannis Spanos, Stefanos Korkolis, Vicky Moscholiou, Dimitris Mitropanos, Glykeria, Manolis Misias, Dimitris Basis, David Nachmias to name a few.
“I feel so happy and privileged to have performed with so many wonderful artists who have offered so much to Greece’s contemporary musical culture and history,” says Stefanaki.
The girl from Crete dreams of one day performing for the Greek diaspora, from Canada and the US to distant Australia.
“I feel it’s my life’s mission and greatest passion to sing for Greek audiences and not only, for everyone who loves Greek music. But my greatest goal is to reach the hearts of Greeks worldwide and share the words and sounds that I sing,” she added.
