"Summer Hits"

Cayetano – aka George Bratanis – started his musical journey with Stroggilo Kitrino (The Round Yellow) band back in 1996. As a solo artist under the name Cayetano he appeared in 2004 and since then he has released 5 albums which gained him international recognition.

This is his latest single, a great cover of Commodores' Easy.

Coming from the new EP (2012) of Super Mario and the Exotic Watermelons, this is an afrobeat influenced tune. This EP is the second addition to the funky, soul, jazz universe of Super Mario and the Exotic Watermelons.

Dr. Opin is not a Greek band but the reason it is featured here is Yorgos Pervolarakis, their vocalist, guitarist, composer and lyricist. Dr. Opin describe their music as a cosmopolitan amalgama of worldbeat, Balkan, downbeat, soul-punk.
Here’s a great cover of Tuxedomoon’s In A Manner of Speaking coming from Dr. Opin’s album Time Garden (2010)

Salvador Sango – aka Sotiris Papadopoulos – released a second album in 2012, Cuando Se Caen Las Mascaras (When The Masks Fall), further exploring the afrobeat and latin jazz style.
