Renewed tradition is Greek singer MELINA KANA’s story too. In this case it’s an urban update, homing in on sex, drink, cigarettes and (once) aspirin. The songs come from a decade’s issues and use an assortment of plucked-string support with guests among the Greeks including an entire group from Turkmenistan on three tracks.
Old or contemporary, lyrical or assertive, the singing is deep-tinged, flexible, urgent and sometimes florid enough to sound more Asian than European.
