Fonotopia Shorts: Marika Papagika

Posted in Fonotopia Short by nissarhusseinkhan on July 9, 2010

In this Fonotopia short, Ian cops to a penchant for hyperbole. But…

…could Marika Papagika actually be one of the greatest singers who ever lived or recorded?

Find out for yourself, in this new Fonotopia short about a woman who made it from the tiny Mediterranean island of Kos to owning her own music club in midtown New York City:

Keep an eye out for a Papagika record coming out soon on Ian’s Canary Records label.

    Χρυσαΐδω (Chrysaido). My best guess its a woman’s nickname deriving from Χρυσή (Chrysi= Gold, Golden, also a common woman’s name in Greece) + Αΐδος (Aidos= Singer in ancient Greek) or Αΐδονι (Aidoni: Nightingale, common generic Greek nickname for good singers)

    After a small research I discovered that Χρυσαΐδω is a rare name still used in Greece. I’ll try to find some time and translate the lyrics for you. V
